notes from Diamanda Galás music shop:
O DEATH PERFORMED LIVE BY DIAMANDA GALÁS, VOICE, AND IMPERIAL CONCERT GRAND AT THE ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES FESTIVAL AT CAMBER SANDS. Recorded in November 2006. Live mixing by Blaise Dupuy. Post-production and final mix by D E F. Photo by Richard Morrison. Font: Alamgir

This legendary performance, done at the invitation of Mars Volta, is unparalleled by any soloist since Jimi Hendrix. Period. Voice and piano are one ax. Forget singer-songwriters. This is a new tradition for voice and piano that has never been heard before and never will again.

The festival tech crew noticed there was blood on the keyboard after her performance. Galás said, " Yeah, it felt right, that show. Probably broke a few fingernails. Nice night."

Jazz writers and blues writers cannot hear her music as directly contributing to their research, although they will one day, but the Greeks can hear the amanes singing that fronts the work -- making it close only to Ethiopian singing, which combines the inheritance of Byzantium from the Greek and Coptic churches with the Blues, as Galás does here.

For Galás it is a natural inheritance of a Greek Egyptian/Smyrnaic and Maniate blood – and an American homeland.

Critics, take note. Study. This is the Professor. Her father and Johnny Otis would be proud.
