“Flutist and composer Yulia Musayelyan is truly a global citizen, and her music reflects this multiculturalism with a brilliance flowing from her respectful and masterful synthesis of international folk styles as she carries them forward into the fold of modern jazz. Unsaid documents a decade of learning, creating, and refining as Yulia and her music have grown to become a powerful voice that is far greater than the sum of their constituent parts.”
