DAEMONIA NYMPHE - Witches Lullaby

Greek folk acoustic project Δαιμονία Νύμφη (Daemonia Nymphe) has recently released its new 5-track EP “Witches’ Lullaby“. These songs were originally composed for the play Macbeth, which was staged at the National Theatre of Northern Greece, directed by Anastasia Revi. In the play, this melody represented the Shakespearean witches, enigmatic and dangerous beings who manipulate Macbeth and make us wonder if they are, in fact, the Fates. The lullaby is a melody that symbolizes birth; a new life. Even in ancient Greek mythology, life was influenced by the Fates, “Clotho”, “Lachesis” and “Atropos”. The first represented the present, the second the future and the third the past, all that has happened and cannot be changed. Lullabies have their own inner strength which can follow a soul on its journey into this world. At the same time lullabies change depending on who is singing them, when the protective force they emit has a different starting point and carries different dreams…

So, based on the melody of the original lullaby (the dark lullaby of Shakespeare’s witches), which Δαιμονία Νύμφη composed for the play, they intended to create four original lullabies. All five artists involved in this project, had the freedom to create their own lullaby, giving it different meanings each time. Japanese “Hattis Noit”, Spanish “Priscilla Hernandez”, British / Portuguese “Victoria Couper” in collaboration with British / Turkish “Reyhan Yusuf” and Greek “Evi Stergiou”, convey through their voices a memory of their own tenderness, strength and hope. The EP was released on Bandcamp on the 31st of March 2021 and on all other digital platforms on the 8th of April 2021.The Bandcamp release also includes the original track “Witches’ Lullaby” which was the inspiration for this project.
