The Dirt on Dusky D.

Dusky Diana

A rather unique vocalist, Dusky Diana combines Funk, Soul, and Hip Hop music with the epic story of a would-be hero. Although many groups are combining classic soul with contemporary Hip Hop, she is set apart from the rest through the use of comic book mythology to support her musical exploration. Ms. Dusky is "another kind of super hero" whose lyrics swing from English to Spanish, and whose performances are often episodic and given in full super hero regalia. Dusky Diana combines theater and motion comics in live performance, creating news ways to experience and define a Hip Hop concert. Visually she is supported by the work of Philly based Noir world wide and musically, she is backed by the Hip Hop collective Community Education. The collective gained recognition with their debut LP The South Bronx Sessions. They are currently working on the motion comic "The Last Days of Kartika" and continue to perform regularly.
