"On her new album 'Voodoo Princess' wild child Christina Linhardt is a fireball of creativity with a beautiful and pure voice that blazes an operatic trail of musical mysticism, taking you on a whimsical journey spiced with sprinklings of exotic and jazzy rhythms that bedazzle in songs 'Bedlam Boyzz' and 'Wolf at Bay'; disco flavored pop with 'Bengal Prince'; powerful theatrics with 'Elf King'; and heart warming songs such as 'Redwood Theatre' and 'Waterfall' that conjure visions of majestic beauty. There is no other sound like the album Voodoo Princess– it's simply delicious!."
— Review by Lisa D. Smith, The Big Blend Magazine.
Inspired by her mystical journeys in the Caribbean,
"Voodoo Princess" is the second solo cd of vocalist Christina Linhardt,
the "Diva of the Secret Societies".
Already having a propensity for the magickal arts as a child,
Christina searched the globe from the Tropical Islands, to the Middle East, to Southern Africa for esoteric knowledge.
Along the way she found love and passion which inspired her second album "Voodoo Princess". Disco grooves meet
with Reggae flavorings, sprinkled with a touch of Bollywood here, and a smattering of Grand Opera there.
A selection of superlative studio musicians graces the tracks:
on guitar, Doug Livingston
on keyboards and steel guitar,
on bass guitar, Steve Pemberton
on drums, Angel Luis
Figueroa on percussion,
on trumpet and flugel horn, Andrew Lippman
on trombone, Dan Weinstein
on viola, violin and back-up vocals, Lisa Weinstein
on violin, Bruce Eskovitz
on saxophones and theatrical offerings by actor/ voice-over artist Jeffrey van der Byl
Being inspired by the original "Little Mermaid" sound-track from her childhood,
Ms. Linhardt managed to use her spell-casting abilities to secure the woodwind soloists
from that Disney smash hit; Dave Shostac
on flute and Tom Boyd
Artfully produced by Bruce Eskovitz
and Christina Linhardt
, engineered by Glenn Nishida
of Pacifica Studios.
