''One of the young voices who play a part in shaping Egypt's cultural future.''
BBC Radio 3, Music Matters, 2013
"El-Ansary’s unique music, rooted in Arabic tradition and influenced by the European avant-garde, has risen to international prominence in a short time."
Fear No Music, 2017
"One of the most daring and probably the youngest professional musician experimenting with sounds and the contemporary landscape in music. In his unique world, he is generous in offering experiences to the audience while improvisation and as such musical freedom remains among his core interests."
