PHARAO

Pharao were one of Germany’s most successful dance act. Their debut single, I Show You Secrets, rocketed them to the top of the German Charts within weeks. This sensational success on the disco scene took them to Number One in every Dance Chart around, earning them the title of ’Gods Of The Dance Temple’ along the way. (and European sales were so good that they made the Top Ten in several other countries and Top Twenty in Music & Media’s Eurochart too!)

The charismatic duo comprising of the exotic singer Kyra Pharao, and the US rapper Deon Blue, received a Gold Award to mark the phenomenal sales of their first hit. The singles ”There Is A Star” and ”World of Magic” also became huge successes.

The same year, Pharao did a remix for Cabballero’s hit Hymn. The track was released on Cabballero’s remix maxi-single (Hymn – Sphinx Remix)

In November 1994, Pharao’s debut album, simply entitled Pharao was released. This superb album contains 13 mysterious hits, for which the ’Gods Of The Dance Temple’ seem to have pulled every register. Each track is a combination of relentless groove and irresistible melody, and the result is, quite simply, a truly great modern dance album.

Much of the credit for that great album goes to a young producer duo, Alexander Hawking and DJ Stevie Steve , who spent the best part of three months entombed in the crypts of their pharaonic studios before finally emerging with a definitive work: exciting mixes, state-of-the-art sounds, dynamic beat and excellent hook lines.

Deon’s powerful rap (and that python wrapped around his bare chest!) sended shivers down a thousand girly spines; Kyra’s warm, erotic voice drew her listeners into a deep, mystical trance; and then, while Michelle and Yvonne, the two futuristic techno dancers, weave seductively in their gold metal outfits, gladiator drummer Jonny drums the whole place into a frenzy while belly-dancer Jasmin performs her wondrous dance – and suddenly the mummy (Tino) itself appears, to be brought back to life in a final, breathtaking, Robot Dance finale!

1995: Deon argued a lot with Kyra, escaped several times without warning, even did a live gig alone in a small discotheque in Essen ! He finally left the group for good to be replaced by Eric Martin. Born in Cardiff, Wales, he had Egyptians among his ancestors. 1,88 m tall, he lived in New York and was already a big name in US rap scene. He learned the new songs of the group in only 3 days, which amazed Kyra a lot.

After almost two years of silence Pharao came back 1997, without Deon, with a new breathtaking single called Temple of Love, a great new track in real Pharao style. The producers team remained the same, with Kyra as vocalist. Unfortunately the rapper Deon Blue had left the group. Last but not least, the snake ’Petit’, a 3 meter long Python, which is Kyra’s pet is also back (according to the first album, the python is called Masiah and is owned by Deon, seems that each of them owns a snake now) … On December 1st, 1997 the single Once Upon a Time was released : it was an europop song with superb vocals by Kyra. Finally after more than 3 years since the first album was released, the second album The Return was released in January 1998. It contained 14 new songs and it’s a mix of europop and the already well known Pharao style. Pharao’s fans will certainly miss Deon’s rap.

In the end of 2014, Kyra Pharao decided to start a comeback with Pharao live on stage with a new rapper, and Pharao is ready for gigs all over the world!
