In April 12th of 2013, flamencosite Chalaúra (Spain), wrote about Edsart:
“Here we have a complete ‘flamenco’”
“With his art he fabricates beautiful sonorous spheres, suffused with an abundance of flamenco ‘feel’ and rhythm.”
“A ‘flamenco’ that nowadays is very scarce.”
“In his hands you find craftsmanship, skill and art.”
“The birth of a new flamenco that will loosen a lot of tongues”
In April 27th 2011 Trouw writes about Edsart (playing the show ‘Flamenkita’):”Virtuous… outstanding guitarist… Belongs to the top of Dutch flamenco musicians.”
In 9 October 2006, the ‘Noord-Hollands Dagblad’ wrote about Edsart Udo de Haes:”A surprise…virtuoso…impressive…and sublime accompanist.”
