"The band launched straight into the heady syncopations of the maracatu from Recife,
transporting us immediately into the alternative reality of a wild, intensely colourful
carnival, about as far removed from Adelaide in winter as you can get."

Diana May Clark's - The Other Side of the Girl ALBUM REVIEW by Tony Hillier
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GIRL
"Clark has a voice that is as adaptable as it is powerful and a passion that exudes from her very soul..." Beatopia Review link.
"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 lyrics 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." Voice FM.
"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." Natali Lambevska (SYN)
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
