Billie Bodega – “Ode to a Dead Princess”
“It started with Maurice Ravel’s “Pavane for a Dead Princess”, composed in 1899. The cultural outpouring of grief for the passing of the little girl that led to the creation of this magnificent piece. I began to explore the idea of my writing a song to my former childhood self, the dead princess being indicative of the childhood I was robbed of due to life circumstances. After a painfully introspective process, grappling with the demons of my past, ‘Ode to a Dead Princess’ was born.” – Billie Bodega
‘Ode to a Dead Princess’ contains a reflective storyline, soul vocals, and a rhythmic instrumentation flavored with a nostalgic vibe.
