“This ambitious effort’s liner notes pretty much say it all in describing The Tribulation as a progressive rock “operalet”. Imagine Andrew Lloyd Weber collaborating with Keith Emerson or Annie Haslam indulging a serious Broadway jones and you’re in the ballpark. By turns majestic and rockin’, The Tribulation is a weirdly satisfying genre-bending fairytale that sounds like an off-Broadway – perhaps way off-Broadway – work-in-progress. The debut release from (one-named) Brooklyn-raised singer-composer Desi, it masterly merges prog-rock, classical music and show tunes. Inspiration seems to draw equally from classic Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Verde, and that groovy Broadway musical Godspell.”
Ask Desi anything...
Q: What inspired you to write "The Tribulation"?
A: My upbringing was musical and spiritual in nature. So, I always had a connection between both. Played in a progressive rock band in NY called Spartacus and doing ELP and the likes opened that dimension of music for me. Then studying philosophy with Hilda Charlton and reading many books especially the Bible, Hilarion Series sparked some thought for this quest. I also studied dance (only to improve my rhythm) at the Hines & Hatchett studio on Broadway in NY. That led to seeing many shows and that added the visual aspect to this endeavor. If you put that all together you get 'The Tribulation' Rock "Operalet". For more info on the concept visit www.desbeemusic.com
