"Their (ALMAs) backgrounds in jazz, folk and classical music serve as a starting point for delightful experimentations. “You have to have roots to be able to improvise” believes Alma. Their music is Alpine and Transalpine, lyrical and lively, intelligent and entertaining, and blows a wonderful refreshing new breeze on the (string) music from Central Europe. Musica con alma y vida, music with heart and soul. In any musical language, that is praiseworthy." (Jury German World Music Award "Rudolstadt-Festival RUTH" 2017)

In 2017 ALMA won the German World Music Award "RUTH".
