From Brittany comes the remarkable band, Children in Paradise. Their cd, "Esyllt", is a testimony to the incredible talent they have. Dam Kat, lead vocalist, has a voice that is so mezmerizing; it is full of passion and so sultry and seductive. Her range carries you through the melancholy, the romance and the tragedies. The instrumentalists follow her so graciously...they are in perfect harmony.
"Esyllt" is an album of songs that are based on stories of Celtic folklore. I closed my eyes as I listened to this cd and saw images of the otherworld, the battles, the passionate lovers, the lonely lass waiting for her knight to return...The title song "Esyllt" is based on the story of Tristan and Isolde, a prominent influential romance...a love not meant to be...a love that met a tragic end.
Curl up in front of a fire with a bottle of wine and the beautiful music of Children in Paradise. Let yourself wander into these mystical songs in "Esyllt" and you will have the perfect romantic evening!
