AFRICULTURES.COM – Those who discovered Jamika performing Live with Zenzile, who she hooked up with at the end of the 1990s, will not be disappointed. Jamika, who is sometimes referred to in the press as a female Tricky or the Grace Jones of the underground, expends great energy in the delivery of her subtle lyrics.
NOVA MAGAZINE – Zenzile are the French equivalent of Massive Attack in the early 1990s.
TELERAMA – Zenzile excel in creating a languid, raw vibe. American singer Jamika Ajalon is reminiscent of Grace Jones.
CODA – In recording Jamika's lyrics, Zenzile are one of the few, if not only, French groups to use real dub-poetry.
NATTY DREAD: LE MAGAZINE DU REGGAE – Jamika's chat on 'Revolution at' is pure dub-poetry reminiscent of Linton Kwesi Johnson. To limpid instrumentals, Jamika sings got to move on; the intro to an unusual track, 'Love Child' is more neo-dub than King Tubby.
