Afro-dite
« on: March 21, 2015, 05:26:27 PM »


Afro-dite is a Swedish pop group made up of three pop singers. The group consists of Blossom Tainton-Lindquist, Gladys del Pilar and Kayo Shekoni. The name is a play on words implying they are beautiful as Greek goddess Aphrodite and being

Blossom has already been in showbusiness for a long time. She sings and dances, played in several musicals and even hosted TV-shows on Swedish television.
Gladys, born in Ecuador, came to Sweden when she was only 7 years old. She worked with Dr. Alban and Denniz Pop but her final breakthrough was when she appeared in ABBA - the true story.
Kayo is another multitalented woman. She is not only a singer, but also an actress, TV-show host and model. In the eighties she sang with the pop group Freestyle and in the nineties she fronted the eurodance project Le Click.


Afro-dite came together to sing the song "Never let it go" for the Eurovision Song Contest 2002. The song was originally meant to be sung by Alcazar but they refused. In Eurovision, Afro-dite reached 8th place. In 2007 they released a new album.

But one day the old lovers long for more
 Dreams and desires of another youth
And they leave their families, betray their friends
 They don't want advice about how to be happy

I didn't know that !
I adore Alacazar, and I love Never Let It Go. Together, they would have given me fabulous goosepimples all over my body. I would've been like Meg Ryan in that restaurant scene in when Harry Met Sally.
Still, Afro-dite did a great job.
And I liked their next stab at Melodifestivalen - Aquaplaya (or something), unless I'm now mixing them up with someone else.
