Daemonia Nymphe - Daemonia Nymphe

The core of Daemonia Nymphe are two multi instrumentalists living in Athens, Spyros Giasafakis and Evi Stiergiou. They aim to recreate the sound of Greek Antiquity, using specific instruments modelled on ancient Hellenic models, and sing in both ancient and modern Greek . Attracting increased interest in Europe due to their enchanting music and a dedication to their historical vision, it is a pleasure to announce the release of their first CD on the French label Prikosnovenie. Working on such a unique project means that the music of Daemonia Nymphe is not easily described with reference to other artists' work. The strength of the band is that they combine skilled and subtle musicianship along with precise rhythms, veering in scope from almost dream-like pleasantness (so evident in tracks such as 'Summoning Divine Selene') through to mesmerising dance ('Hymn to Bacchus'). Daemonia Nymphe invoke a romantic vision of Ancient Greece which embraces more than the pastoral idyll which inspired the English poets of the 19th century, but one that draws on the dynamic of classical Paganism, and the intricate esoteric mysteries of the loss of self, associated with Dionysius and Pan. Their work is a fitting tribute to the impact Hellenic culture has had on Europe.

The self-titled CD is released on Prikosnovenie. The band do no have their own website but Spyros can be contacted at dnymphe@hotmail.com
