The driving force of Prince of Assyria is the artist Ninos Dankha who was brought to Sweden from Iraq by his family at the age of one. His debut album Missing Notes was an extremely well-received collection of ten moving melodic songs portraying resonating shades of joy and sadness from a life touched by love, longing and loss.
The new second album Changing Places finds Prince of Assyria’s brand of Swedish melancholy stripped back to its musical and poetic essence. The album is still an intense journey – you will be taken from uplifting joy to raw grief and back again. Be ready to fall in love and break-up all at the same time. Whether sensitive and vulnerable, or haunting and poetic, each song demands your full attention and grows in your heart over time. This is no dinner party music.
Dankha’s voice is complemented by the equally delicate musical voices of Jonatan Guzman (piano and vocal),Lidija Radmilac (viola), Christa Murley (backing vocals) Patric Thorman (bass and vocal) and Michael Wall(drums).
