-- Multi-cultural performer, Daria (Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou)
has spent the last two decades traveling around the world to sing for children. Starting in 2010, she began to give away new songs every month to share her message of the value and dignity of all kids. As an inspiring start; in January she offers her I HAVE A DREAM song which has become popular in classrooms across the country about the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr, Martin Luther King, Jr. Available at www.dariamusic.com, website visitors can download the song free as well as a songsheet and sheet music.
Hailed for her multi-cultural approach to children’ s entertainment, Daria’s music is neither “sugared-up”
nor dummied down. Created by a team of award-winning musicians and producers, her world music rhythms are infectious and the songs – both traditional and Daria’s originals – have memorable melodies that stay with listeners both young and old alike. And; to the delight of parents and educators, her music brings a message they really want their children to hear. Along with winning national awards for each of her 4 cd’s, Daria was also given a 2009 Parent’s Choice Award for her website as a positive and family-friendly “best pick” on the web.
With a passionate interest in music and community-building, Daria continues to sing, write and travel to unique points around the states and across the globe, from Peru to Israel to Native American Reservations in the Southwest. Says Daria: “I wrote I HAVE A DREAM because MLK was such a big influence in my life. I wanted to find a way to put the ideas and messages from that famous speech into a simple, singable form to reach even a very young listener. It’s really exciting to see that the song has taken off and been used in hundreds of locations around the country, exciting a new generation about the prospects for creating a world of peace and dignity for all. “
