This blog is dedicated to the first rate performer, singer and musician Diamanda Galás. Diamanda Galás (born August 29, 1955) is a Greek-American avant-garde composer, vocalist, pianist, performance artist and painter. Known for her expert piano as well as her distinctive, operatic voice, which has a three and a half octave range, Galás has been described as "capable of the most unnerving vocal terror". Galás often shrieks, howls, and seems to imitate glossolalia in her performances. Her works largely concentrate on the topics of suffering, despair, condemnation, injustice and isolation. She has worked with many avant-garde composers, including Iannis Xenakis, Vinko Globokar and John Zorn. Greatness exists independent of most peoples judgement or opinion. We only listen to the wise. The fools have no vote, this is not a democracy. Photos are published by the kind permission of the artist. Her official website:

Great Lady Singer of Infinite Sorrow

I discovered at an early age that things fall apart.  And things do fall apart in a beehive.  Maybe I was two or three years old. So what? Don't expect me to post nauseating dithyrambs on Twitter nor build a statue to a critic. Push me again, dear. It's just like flying. When Diamanda wanted my humble token of appreciation to be published on her [old] website, I felt immensely proud and honored. I kiss your beautiful soul, my lady!
