The WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN ALBUM Review
Diana May Clark's The Other Side of the Girl by Tony Hillier
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GIRL
"Clark has a voice that is as adaptable as it is powerful and a passion that exudes from her very soul..." Beatopia Review link.
"A home grown international talent. We don't even know what we've got here in Melbourne! Oscillation between sensual, moving and playful proved intoxicating. A brewed concoction of power and sophistication, this show had the audience beguiled in sway to the beat." Natali Lambevska (SYN)
Melbourne Singer/Songwriter & acclaimed Brazilian music interpreter Diana May Clark's new original album The Other Side of the Girl includes 1 cover, 'Mama Africa'. Her new version in English is now an offically published collaboration with the song's composer Chico Cesar agreeing to split royalties with Clark.
Diana had a special time recording with Chico in his home state:
"Chico Cesar's music is loved by 4 generations in Brazil; known by all for his television soap-opera theme and Afro-Pop anthems, he's also a respected Poet and the Minister for Culture in Paraiba. I visited Chico & we had fun recording my original 'Hang On' (co-written by Clark's husband, virtuoso guitarist Doug de Vries). He also did me the honour of introducing me to live radio (including interviews in Portuguese); there were some adventurous moments..."
Chico appears as a special guest on The Other Side of the Girl Available online: iTunes
