Description

How do you define the connection between inspiration and the origin of one’s being?How do you pinpoint the artistic background of someone who considers herself a collector of influences of places she has lived in and those she carries in her genes, rather than belonging to any particular part of this world?Dalinda, originally Bosnian, was born in Libya, on the Saharan fringe of the Mediterranean.

From an early age she was exposed to a filigree of musical influences which provided her with a taste and appreciation of different genres; Italian canzonnas which she learned from her little friends, the Slavic/Balkan folk her father listened to, the soulful sounds of Edit Piaff and Russian Gypsy ballads her mother adored, and the Arabian music everywhere around. Thus, identification with one particular sound was difficult.

After exploring a variety of opportunities in higher education, she realised that music nevertheless remained the focus of her life. However, the outlet for her expression in Tripoli was missing, and so she left Libya for England, in a quest to fuse the music from her childhood with the music in her mind.London and the past decade captivated her with its particular vibe- the reign of freedom of artistic expression- and she realised it was the place where one could be different and yet belong; the place where the Saharan sounds finally became louder and clearer within her…

Arabs would call it fate, and maybe it was, that right at that time she had met the World renowned percussionist-composer-producer Hossam Ramzy, who has been vital and instrumental to the music of the leading artists such as Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, Cheb Khaled, Sting, Loreena McKennitt, Tarkan, Celik, to name a few. A partnership was formed, a musical direction taken, and…the sounds were at last identified, given texture and colour…the un-named incandescent shade of blue finally got a name- and ‘Turquoise’ set out to grasp it.

This album was recorded in various parts of the World: England, Italy, USA, Egypt and Libya, embracing international artists and their art at its origin…
