Biography

Caamora is the collaboration of British keyboardist Clive Nolan (Pendragon, Arena) and Polish singer Agnieszka Świta. So far they released two EPs, Closer (2006) and Walk on Water (2007). These both contain tracks from the planned release of the first full album, the rock-opera version of the H Rider Haggard novel, ‘She’”.

The music itself is not too complex, but heartily emotional. It’s strongly based on Agnieszka’s beautiful voice and features a lot of aftertastes of the softer British neoprogressive scene.

Clive Nolan and Agnieszka Świta met back in February 2005, when she visited England from her homeland of Poland. After working together for a short while, they formed Caamora, and began preparing for a Rock Opera version of the H Rider Haggard novel, ‘She’.

Over the next two years material for the ‘She’ project was written and developed. For such a large-scale project, this represented a lot of music and lyrics.

Clive Nolan: “The demo songs were recorded with Agnieszka testing out all of the vocals. This gradually helped to give us an overall picture of the opera.”

During this time, the two performers decided to take their music out on tour. The ‘She’ project has always been a long-term plan, and they were eager to get out and spread the word. So, during the later part of 2006 Caamora (with Świta singing to Nolan’s piano playing) toured Europe to a warm reception. Then they headed out to South America with some very successful gigs in Chile and Argentina.

    I don't mean Agneiszka Swita (Ayesha)! She's expressive enough. But the men are very dull! -_-

    The whole musical is good, but... but... there isn't something important in it. :( I need more expression! Singers must be more than singers in rock opera. They must be actors!

    There are some really powerful moments on She, and overall I think Caamora did a great job of turning the novel into a rock opera, although nothing will ever be as good as the book for me. And I don't think Agnieszka's accent is too pronounced at all, compared to some of the other Polish singers I've heard singing in English. I think she did quite a fabulous job actually!

    Adding to that. I would have hoped a bit more Ayreonish stuff, more instrumental parts and all.

    She is a decent album. Maybe not quite there that I hoped but a fine peace of work. I'm not that keen on Agnieszka's voice, the accent is too weird.

    I can't believe how beautiful this album can be. Shadows and The Bonding, especially, sound fantastic. This is just another proof that Poland has a great potential regarding progressive rock. Not to mention Nolan's a genius.
