Angelique Ionatos - D'un Bleu Tres Noir

Angélique Ionatos is a Greek singer produced by the French label Naïve. As far as I know she is unknown on the American side of the Atlantic. Her songs and her voice are melancholic and languorous, reminiscent of some other Mediterranean women singers. I am thinking in particular of the Portugese singer Bevinda. She has a similar feminine "grandeur". Ionatos's Greek roots give to her music a somewhat mystical feeling. She is being accompanied only by few instruments with arrangements that suit very the color of her melancholic voice. A discovery! - by Bruno Deschênes, AMG
