Vocalists & Songs

  “Ombra” is sung in Italian and French, “Ballare” in Italian, and “Miracula Aeternitatis” in Latin. The rest are sung in an imaginary language.
Blending Eastern and Western sounds to create rhythmic and lyrical motifs, the electric and acoustic Dralion score draws its inspiration from classic Indian melodies, weaving in influences from Andalusia, Africa as well as Central and Western Europe. The Asian and Middle Eastern feel is enhanced through instruments like the sitar, oud and darbuka, but then the final number features, of all things, Scottish bagpipes. The band is composed of six musicians and two singers who perform live for every performance. "With Dralion, we were trying to find a place where all the musical traditions of the world meet, in such a way that something altogether new comes out of it,” says Violaine Corradi, Composer. “There's a lot of music in there: Andalusian, Arabic, ragga, African, and more. It sounds like all of that, and none of it." Guy Desrochers, Sound Designer, adds: "The music in Dralion has a lot of Middle-Eastern elements and percussion in it. That dictated how we designed the sound for the whole show. As soon as you walk into the big top, you're in that atmosphere, in that environment."
