English:

Singer Darkyra Black originates from Australia, but found the facilities in Greece to record her first full CD. Producer and arranger George Boussounis took her under his wings and teamed her up with some great musicians like Garry King (Jeff Beck, Joe Lynn Turner) on bass, Paul Jupe on guitar and Fabinho Jablonski on keyboards, along with a battery of guest musicians on bass en different instruments. That make a full and rich sound on which Darkyra can drape her vocals. She’s a great singer with a voice that has some very individual elements. She did most of the songwriting and Boussounis was probably a great help to arrange them. This debut is is a beautiful record to listen to. Her melancholic melodies fit very well with the instrumentation. ‘Dragon Tears’ is a sort of concept album about a geisha put in a gothic atmosphere. Very rich music that is!


Nederlands:

Zangeres Darkyra Black is afkomstig uit Australië, maar vond creatieve hulp in Griekenland waar ze met producer en componist George Boussounis haar eerste full cd opnam. Boussounis omringde haar met een aantal topmuzikanten zoals Garry King (Jeff Beck, Joe Lynn Turner) op bas, Paul Jupe op gitaar en Fabinho Jablonski aan de keyboards plus een rist gastmuzikanten op diverse instrumenten. Het resultaat is een bijzonder rijke plaat waarnaar het zeer aangenaam luisteren is. Haar stem klinkt origineel in het genre en ze kan ze volledig tot haar echt laten komen met de schitterende arrangementen die haar begeleiden. Darkyra schreef de meeste nummers voor deze conceptplaat die handelt over een geisha in een gotische context. Mooie plaat!
