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.

Pam Shaffer

Armed with a delicious blend of delicate piano lines and biting lyrics, Pam Shaffer’s new album “It Is Happening Again” is packed with sweeping emotion and evocative stories. Pam is a singer of lullabies sprung from a sunken pirate ship, a pixie with a haunting voice, nimble fingers, and a killer shoe collection. A rare LA native, she has always had a taste for the eccentricities of life, sporting her great aunt’s costume jewelry to school as a child while delighting in a musical backdrop of Chopin, folk tunes and the requisite pop of the 80’s.
