Danyavaad & The Shimmy Sisters have been on a nomadic journey through the soul and need your help to produce the next album "Nine Levels of Bliss". Our goal is to produce our album and merchandise (posters, t-shirts, stickers, buttons, rub-on tattoos, 16-page press kit) and take it on tour!
Danyavaad & The Shimmy Sisters is a five piece gypsy / bellydance / rock band and performance artists based out of San Diego, Calif. In the six years we've been together we have released a two disc CD/DVD "March of the Gypsies" (listen), was nominated Best World Artist and Album in the San Diego Music Awards, been praised on America's Got Talent (video), and performed throughout California, Nevada, Texas, Florida and Mexico. We've contributed to the experience of Wanderlust, Burning Man, EarthDance, and various belly dance festivals. This is just the beginning of sharing our artful spirit with each other and you.
“Nine Levels Of Bliss” is a poetic journey through mythology, magic, shamanism, and self discovery. In addition to English, there are also lyrics in Hungarian and Farzi. The album will be more musically diverse than “March of the Gypsies.” In addition to the electric sitar, bass, and percussion found on their first album, this effort will feature Saz and Cumbus Guitar (both from Turkey), Sueng (from Thailand), mandolin, violin, accordion, and more electronic sounds.
Through your pledge we can attain our goal and share the mystical elements of our music and dance. YOU can help bring our vision into reality right NOW! All donations are blissfully respected.
