Artist of the week

I am aware that the Friday section is not motivating to you but I can not help it. Music is necessary to life, it’s essential.

I am also aware that the artist that I am presenting today can win many dislikes but she seems me amazing. Amazing because maybe you like her work or not, but surely that does not leave you indifferent. 

Her name is Diamanda Galás and if you know who is she, you’ll know what I mean.



[ Contradictory and enigmatic woman , versatile composer and artist, whose unique voice has a richness of nuances and registers rarely found in the alternative music world. She has been described by John Gill in “Time out London” magazine with the following words: “bitch, santa, demon, lover, crazy or angel, there is not another voice in rock, jazz, or the musical vanguard with her violence, her searing passion and pure elemental force”.]





PD. That she dares to put music to Nietzsche, Antonin Artaud, Gerard Nerval Artaud, Gore Vidal, Baudelaire and Lautréamont writings among others, do we ignore it?


Enjoy, or not.


Good weekend.



Bracketed text extracted from:



Soy consciente de que la sección de los viernes no os resulta del todo motivadora pero no lo puedo remediar. Hace falta música en la vida, es necesaria, imprescindible. 

Soy consciente también de que la artista que os presento hoy, puede que gane muchos “dislikes” pero a mi, me resulta alucinante. Alucinante porque quieras o no, no te va a dejar indiferente.

Se llama Diamanda Galás y si la conoces, sabrás a qué me refiero.

[ Mujer contradictoria, enigmática, versátil compositora y artista, cuya excepcional voz tiene una riqueza de matices y registros pocas veces encontrada en el mundo de las músicas alternativas. Ha sido descrita por John Gill en “Time out London” con las siguientes palabras: “puta, santa, demonio, amante,loca o ángel, no hay otra voz en el rock, el jazz o la vanguardia musical con su violencia, con su abrasadora pasión y pura fuerza elemental”] .


PD. que se atreva a musicalizar obras de Nietzsche, Antonin Artaud, Gerard Nerval Artaud, Gore Vidal, Baudelaire, y Lautreamont entre otros, ¿lo pasamos por alto?

Disfrutad, o no.

Buen fin de semana.
