The concert Vaya con Dios in Russia!

March 20 2007

The Belgian group Vaya con Dios (in translation - "Go with God") appeared in 1985 and almost immediately won the team a huge success. Frontmenshey group was energetic and charismatic woman named Dani Kline (Dani Klein). Prior to the team she has worked in several bands and has gained valuable experience that allowed her to become not only a brilliant singer memorable, but also a producer. Also vocalist in the group included bass player Dirk Shoufs (Dirk Schoufs) and guitarist Willie Lambegt (Willy Lambegt). All of them were not new to the music.

Dani Klein sang in groups of Catalog of Cool, Dirk Shoufs played bass guitar in a group The Wild Ones, and Willie Lambegt with Danny played in the band Arbeid Adelt!. For the first time they performed at the opening of the store of their friends. Their first single «Just a Friend of Mine» show partiality to a group of acoustic instruments and music in Spanish style. This song was a hit in Belgium and that was a complete surprise, and in Europe (300,000 copies sold in France alone).

The first album is very pleased the audience, and the second disc - Night Owls, released in 1990, brought the group fame. Popular has become not only same name energetic song about night owls, but also, of course, "What's a Woman" and "Nah neh nah", which became hits. Since the advent of all these songs has been almost twenty years, but they still sound fresh and not lose their popularity.

Since 1991, the group has almost no permanent structure (excluding Dani Klein). At that time, Dirk Shoufs leaves the team, and some time later killed, allegedly on drugs. The singer responded to the death when a person close to her record album Time Flies, which is considered the darkest in the work group. This album - fully Dani Klein product, which explains that the group actually became a very singer - "femme fatale". For some reason the drive did not make the proper impression on the critics. However, it does not detract from the value of the album, especially - the songs "Heading for a fall".

In the mid-90's Danny realized that working in a group ceases to bring her joy. With new musicians, there was no mutual understanding, and since Danny belonged to the type of creative mind, which is very important, as she says, "spiritual bond" - eventually she had to bow out with the team. She said that the leaves show business and sent to travel and live a quiet life.

However, a few years Danny Klein still returned to the scene, but as part of a new group of Purple Prose. Then she arranged a surprise for fans of Vaya con Dios: in 2004, after nearly a decade after the collapse of the collective released their new album "The Promise". This album contains covers of songs that were meaningful in the work of the singer. Stylistically traditional music combined with a retro, European dance-pop and trendy latino. Here you can hear the weeping violin, cello velvet, ethnic percussion, modern keyboards and DJ gadgets. Songs are performed in four European languages and rare dialect kimbudu. Critics have called "The Promise" - a promising comeback and interesting album. By the way, to date the account group, a total of more than 7 million albums sold.

Vaya con Dios Concert will be held in Moscow on April 8.
