Silhouette: Dafni's songs performed by her friends
2017

Hi, it's Pete here, Dafni's husband. A couple of months after Dafni passed away in 2016, over 50 of her friends from the Los Angeles Americana scene got together at the Cinema Bar in Culver City to pay a musical tribute on what would have been her 44th birthday. About half of the acts performed a Dafni song. I decided to compile a tribute album in Dafni's honor to commemorate that wonderful show. The resulting album features 31 of Dafni's songs, five of which have not appeared yet on any previous releases. Proceeds from the sale of this record will go to a memorial fund set up in Dafni's name at UCLA. You can purchase the double CD, Silhouette: Dafni's Songs Performed By Her Friends, here. You can donate to the Dafni Amirsakis Memorial Fellowship Award here. I hope you enjoy the album; I think it's wonderful. With love, Pete.
