Christiane Dolores has combined elements of trip-hop and jazz, spoken word and psych-rock, to create a unique piano-led singer-songwriter sound aligned as much to 20th-century lieder as to R&B; part Kurt Weill, part Portishead. - Justin Hopper
"With Amor Fati the artist Christiane Dolores tempts the casual listener to conjure up a strange cabaret where the legitimate quirkiness of Laurie Anderson, the poetic earnestness of Jeff Buckley and the jazz/gospel stylings of a glittering, long-dead era have been deliciously combined. But after a few listens you realize these sweet, catchy, air-tight songs have been been bought and paid for by a real woman over the course of a lifetime. If acceptance is the adult version of patience then this music shows you can have peace with a broken world."-Alexi Morrissey
Amor fati is a Latin phrase that may be loosely translated as "love of fate" or "love of one's fate". It is used to describe an attitude in which one sees everything that happens in one's life, including suffering and loss, as good or, at the very least, necessary. In that they are among the facts of one's life and existence, so they are always necessarily there whether one likes them or not.
