Krazy Kalimba

Groan. Another weekend is gone, and gloom descends...

Not so fast! Not while our Gallic Patron Saint Dalida (who would also have celebrated her birthday on Friday, alongside Eartha and Betty) is here to entertain us!

Here she is in a remarkably perplexing performance on this Tacky Music Monday - complete with a troupe of safety gays wearing full-face masks and a grinning semi-naked man with a horn - of a song that was probably more familiar as a Boney M track, it's Kalimba de Luna:

Have a good week... (I'm off to see the marvellous Miss Mari Wilson tonight, singing her unique tribute to another Patron Saint Miss Dusty Springfield - so at least that is something to look forward to!)

Dalida (born Iolanda Cristina Gigliotti, 17th January 1933 – 3rd May 1987)


  1. I love that song, both with Boney M and the eternal Dalida. In fact, pretty much anything Dalida has ever done is fabulous in my book!

    1. I agree. Such a talented woman! She would have been 81 years old if she had lived... Jx

  2. I'm still devastated that I couldn't find her tomb in Pere Lachaise when I was there.

    I had hoped there would have been neon and dancing boys to guide me there. But alas.
