Biography

Athínai, Greece (1994 – present)

Δαιμόνια Νύμφη (Romanized: Daemonia Nymphe) is a band established in Athens, Greece in 1994 by Spyros Giasafakis and Evi Stergiou. The band’s music is modeled after and is often categorized as ethereal, neoclassical darkwave, neofolk or gothic.
Daemonia Nymphe uses authentic instruments, including lyra, varvitos, krotala, pandoura and double flute, which are made by the Greek master Nicholas Brass. Their shows are very theatrical, with members wearing masks and ancient dress. Their lyrics are drawn from Orphic and Omeric hymns and Sappho’s poems for Zeus and Hekate.

They released their debut album in 1998 under the title “The Bacchic Dance of the Nymphs” on the German record label Solistitium Records.This album focuses on a lyrical theme that ranges between the myths of the Hellenic antiquity and music that could easily be described as theatrical.
The same year, 1998, finds the project renewed and a strong core of musicians is consisted -musicians who compose music based on the aesthetic and theoretical border of ancient Hellenic music.

One year later,a co-operation gradually changes the course of the band. We are referring to the meeting between Daemonia Nymphe and Nikos Brass , an instrument constructor who has managed to reproduce almost every ancient Hellenic instrument by using his artistic skills, starting over from the year 1980 up to nowadays.

Daemonia Nymphe played their first concert presentation of the instruments at the Renaissance Festival of Rethymno, Crete. More concerts followed at the Interbalkan European Medical Center, in Tsagarada Pilio and N. Ionia of Volos. Along side they release their first mini CD titled “Tyrvasia”.

    @nikbleatzanyat, обычно так бывает, когда в таких [похожих] группах играет волынка, лира и весьма по необычному вокал, поэтому у меня появляется атмосфера другого века. Именно так мне и воссоздалась картина средневековья. Хотя правильно будет сказать конечно же древнегреческую мифологию или древнегреческий мир.
