Stella scaled an everlasting impression last year with fans everywhere in Emanouel Bet Younanâ€™s â€œDyoutaâ€ album,where together they brought down the house in Orahim Lazarâ€™s â€œShoprakh Dmeera.â€
But this clairvoyant artist has a musical background that traces back to Moscow, afterÂ moving from Georgia, where she was born. In her words, â€œIâ€™m a self-taught pianist. . . in fact, when I was seven years-old, I got accepted into a music school for gifted children. But because it was far from where we lived, my parents could not take me there and after one month they withdrew me from the school. However, I always had a passion for music and so my dad bought me a piano and I taught myself to play by ear,â€ says the self-made diva.
She developed her talent through writing her own lyrics and music, and later joined the musical production of â€œShamiramâ€ ensemble, enabling the young starlet to travel to America and Europe. She was also hosting a radio show until relocating to North America, naming Canada her new home. Since then she has evolved in contemporary Christian music and immersed in English recording, as well as stage acting, leading right up to her last album release â€œNew Day.â€
New Day is a careful infusion of contemporary Assyrian sounds interwoven with Pop, Greek and East Indian. A 10-track album authored by the singer herself (except track #4 Sara L Gneta).
Stella carves a national territory in sixth track tribute to motherland Assyria in â€œBetnahrain Gu Khoulmani,â€ (the land of two rivers in my dreams, Assyrian) tracing her vocals back to her earlier recordings and drawing strength from her classical roots.
Rezgo is simply audacious and deserving of admiration, placing her among the elite in the Assyrian music industry. Stella Rezgo is an encore talent with a must have album.
