Daina and the Tribe Daina Shukis | jazzrockndance music video | Press & Review
An interesting departure from the standard presentation of serious music in club settings was the surprise entrance of dancer Daina Shukys toward the end of the set. Exuding sensuality, the dynamic Ms. Shukys, finger cymbals aloft, meshed beautifully with the ever-expanding spirals of musical agitation

Featured This Week On The Jazz Network Worldwide: Vocalist Daina Shukis Promotes Her Vintage Musical Catalogue With Collaborations From An Array Of Jazz Masters
New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Jazz Network Worldwide) Daina Shukis is an international entertainment veteran whose relationships with musical masterminds throughout her career has resulted in some classic live recordings from some of the most noted venues in New York City ie. the Bottom Line and CBGB’s. The trilogy of music being shared are Daina and the Tribe LIVE at “Soundscape with Jeremy Steig and CBGB’s power trio, Daina and the Tribe “On a Jungle Boat Ride” and “Mystic Rendezvous” instrumental.” Clear vocal tones over textures of complex rhythms, finger cymbals add an ancient world ethnic flavor to some songs. Dania is known for composing her own musical and vocal accompaniment for her choreography and since dancing was an integral part of her shows, space to develop improvisational climax was part of the musical structure.

“Here is a cool song with a soul, it makes me feel like I am listening to a Indian mix with a touch of African, very mysterious beats and the amazing touches of bells and drums. This is a very special song, that you want to listen when you are trying to get some creativity or inspiration to make something. The theatrical voice of the singer is very special and mystical, she is passionate and have very good vibrations and tones that make you vibrate and relax. It sounds like a religious song that will bless you and inspire you to rebirth and travel into heaven.” (Review from Reverbnation)

I like the sound of this now. The live-lounge sweet electric guitar at the very beginning of the song sounds pretty good. Then the introduction with the woman singing and the beat of those sweet drums! Whoa this is pretty good track! Oh god, that sweet bass too I can’t believe I missed that too! Forgive me, the bass player of this song. Anyway, I live the fact that there’s no chorus to this song, just a solo of instrumentals. Especially that sweet bass, man. That bass solo is just brilliant. Then the intro of the vocals again. The low tone of the bass, the high guitar and vocals, plus the sweet beat of the drums compliment each other better than the colors of the American flag. And wow, that ending too, that was live?! that was amazing, that was definitely a 10/10 and I’ve only ever given a 10/10 once before, to a track much similar to this, sweet bass and sweet instrumentals. Anyhow, 10/10 well played! (review of” Movie Show”)
The prelude of the song the presence of the rhythms and blues of the guitar combined with the accompaniment sets the tone for the artists voice. The songs melody speaks volumes of a live band at a chic and hip bar. Recommended for all music lovers! (crowd review of” Movie Show”)
Last night Reverend Saint John Last night on westcoastradio.weebly.com the DJ Reverend Saint John of West Coast Radio played Daina and the Tribe mentioning Daina Shukis as a pretty, sultry singer from the East Coast several times with a voice drop of her introducing the band. He was hilarious interjecting his own comments at the end of the seductive song Cruise Control. He played Sex Goddess prior to his show, then The First Time I Saw You, Baby (a cover of Adrian Guillery’s song previous guitarist and singer in Jeremy and the Satyrs) as well as Love Potion a live cut from Soundscape NYC featuring Jeremy Steig. I was thrilled and deeply grateful for the Rev’s support and exposure!! come out to his station also my wordpress site – See more at: http://www.jazzrockndance.com/blog/dedication_to_daina_and_the_tribe_on_west_coast_radio/#sthash.UAwi4HoT.dpuf
