ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by her mystical journeys in the Caribbean, "Voodoo Princess" is the second solo cd of vocalist Christina Linhardt, the "Diva of the Secret Societies".

Already having a propensity for the magickal arts as a child, Christina searched the globe from the Tropical Islands, to the Middle East, to Southern Africa for esoteric knowledge.

Along the way she found love and passion which inspired her second album "Voodoo Princess". Disco grooves meet with Reggae flavorings, sprinkled with a touch of Bollywood here, and a smattering of Grand Opera there.

A selection of superlative studio musicians graces the tracks:
Dino Meneghen on guitar, Doug Livingson on keyboards and steel guitar, Adam Cohen on bass guitar, Steve Pemberton on drums, Angel Luis Figueroa on percussion, Larry Williams on trumpet and flugel horn, Andrew Lippman on trombone,Dan Weinstein on viola, violin and back-up vocals, Lisa Weinstein on violin, Bruce Eskovitz on saxophones and theatrical offerings by actor/ voice-over artist Jeffrey van der Byl. Being inspired by the original "Little Mermaid" sound-track from her childhood, Ms. Linhardt managed to use her spell-casting abilities to secure the woodwind soloists from that Disney smash hit; Dave Shostac on flute and Tom Boyd on Oboe.

Artfully produced by Bruce Eskovitz and Christina Linhardt, engineered by Glenn Nishida of Pacifica Studios.
Beware the enchantment of the Voodoo Princess......

A delightful rendition of well-known and not-so-well-known music
It is difficult for me to choose a favorite song from the Voodoo Princess CD because I would like to say that each one of them is my favorite in a special way. However, if I really, really had to choose one, it would be of course the ErlKönig. In this poem-song Christina very well articulates the different voices and continually increases the tension until the very sad end. As most men, I would hate to admit it but it does bring tears to my eyes when I listen to it, now that I’ve read the translation of Goethe’s poem. My next favorite is Waterfall; the music and vocal sounds are so delightful and cheerful but when you listen to the words you realize its melancholy nature. Christina’s singing on a number of tracks is so expressive that I can almost imagine her acting these songs on stage. The CD is quite and accomplishment and I commend her for this entrepreneurial project of obtaining such great talents for the accompaniment and coordinating the entire production of the CD.

Bravo!!! And Bravo again!!!

Amazing As Always!
Christina's voice and talents are beyond description. Just buy the CD and listen! You'll understand.

Powerful and seductive journey, with many layers!
Christina Linhardt works her magic with a voice that is powerful and seductive all intertwined. The most astonishing aspect of her lyrics and performances is that she builds attractive links between traditional materials and contemporary styles, thus opening up new perspectives through a journey that takes us matrix-hopping across time, space, and emotional merry-go-rounds. Backed by outstanding musicians, Christina provides a most enjoyable multi-layered experience, well nuanced both textually and musically.
