"Maija's more apt to inhabit a lyric than peddle it . . . her real strength lies in her thoughtful approach to ballads . . . . there's no mistaking the alternately tender and sultry allure of Maija's interpretations."
The Washington Post, 1993
"It's hard to say what's more impressive, her talent or her taste. Thank heavens for package deals."
The Washington Post, 1996
"Maija's voice, an instrument rich with soul, class and vitality."
Cadence, 1994
"Maija fuses smoky passion, skepticism, and determination . . . . her dark, swooping voice is suited for haunting Brazilian material."
Washington City Paper, 1993
