"If I told you that this was a great pop album there’s a chance you could
overlook it. Do so to your own loss, this is a fine album bubbling along
with terrific songs that you can bop along to. With it’s easy sing along l
yrics and sixties groove overtones the whole album is a delight to listen to
and just the thing when you are in need of an aural pick me up.
An album worthy of a wider audience."
"A home grown international talent. We don't even know what we've
got here in Melbourne! Oscillation between sensual, moving and playful
proved intoxicating. A brewed concoction of power and sophistication,
this show had the audience beguiled in sway to the beat."

Melbourne Singer/Songwriter & acclaimed Brazilian music interpreter
Diana May Clark's new original album The Other Side of the Girl
includes 1 cover, 'Mama Africa'. Her new version in English is now an
offically published collaboration with the song's composer Chico Cesar
agreeing to split royalties with Clark.
Diana had a special time recording with Chico in his home state:
"Chico Cesar's music is loved by 4 generations in Brazil; known by all
for his television soap-opera theme and Afro-Pop anthems, he's also
a respected Poet and the Minister for Culture in Paraiba. I visited Chico
& we had fun recording my original 'Hang On' (co-written by Clark's husband,
virtuoso guitarist Doug de Vries). He also did me the honour of introducing
me to live radio (including interviews in Portuguese); there were some adventurous moments..."
Chico appears as a special guest on The Other Side of the Girl Available at Basement disks and Readings stores, Melbourne. Online: iTunes
