Listening to Lady Gaga’s Goverment Hooker while on the treadmill got me thinking about Diamanda Galás. Diamanda Galás is a very amazing, very influential singer with a distinctive operatic voice and she has a range of three and a half octaves. It can be very unreal listening to her. She was born in 1955, she’s Greek but has lived in New York since the 70’s. There really is no one else like her.
