During these rather heavy times, here is something light for you...

Last summer this music video was made on a beautiful greek island called Kythira, starring my 6 year old boy (very proud of him). I hope it can bring you some light fulness, and wings to fly.

"The Other Side" album release

We made it!

The CD's are out and not only that... 

Here the featured review on Folk Radio U.K written by Thomas Blake about "The Other Side";

"On ‘The Other Side,’ Adaya successfully reimagines folk music through the bright window of intelligent songcraft and genuinely experimental arrangements. It is an intensely varied and often mesmerising release from a unique voice.


‘In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, five hundred years of democracy and peace. And what did they produce? The cuckoo clock.’ So said Graham Greene, who moved to the shores of Lake Geneva to live out the last years of his life. And the country has been haunted by that reputation ever since. It is the place of cowbells and sterile bureaucracy where people go to die. It is not a place where things are created, but where they end. Certainly not a hotbed of mind-frazzling psychedelic folk music. Well, the new album from Swiss-based songwriter Adaya looks set to put that admittedly dubious theory to the sword." ....
