Critics : La Presse ( Alain Brunet ) | 26 March 2013
''Native to Chad, the Montreal group H’Sao releases its third album: ORIA means “are you fed up yet?” This sums up the humanistic commitment of its members who stem from the Rimtobaye and Ledjebgue families, young people who have had to flee a culturally rich society broken by colonization, authoritarian regimes and civil wars.
Album critics: Le Devoir (Yves Bernard) | 21 March 2013
''Oria – are you fed up yet? H’sao asks this pressing question all throughout their third album, their most socially engaged to date. The first song sets the tone: “on behalf of the public interest, we are being watched, suspected, fine, indebted, confined, recorded, discharged, repatriated, listed, categorized”, vocals soaring high with the sound of soul over a progressively harder guitar line.

H’sao show Critics at the Mundial montreal : On indecent Xposure by isabella Byrne | 16 November 2012
Onwards to H’Sao, pronounced as [Tsao] and made up of five brothers. This group was far past the likes of what one could compare or call beat boxing; it was just a straight ear explosion. Each brother had a distinct, yet amazing voice, and they all moulded together in a deeply energetic and crisp form. They said that “The difference between someone alive and dead is movement”, and in that way, this group wants to make you feel alive. Groups like this just bring the crowd together, making them connected, clapping in unison.
