Biography

Kyra Pharao was 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, 24-year-old singer Kyra Pharao (who is half Indian ), and the 26-year-old American 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.

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.

Dean's powerful rap (and that python wrapped around his bare chest!) sends shivers down a thousand girly spines; Kyra's warm, erotic voice draws 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 itself appears, to be brought back to life in a final, breathtaking, Robot Dance finale!

1997
Finally after almost two years of silence from Pharao they are back with a new breathtaking single called Temple of Love, a great new track in real Pharao style. The producers are still the same great team: DJ Stevie Steve and Alexander Hawking. Unfortunally the rapper Deon Blue have left the group. Last but not least, the snake "Petit" (The Little), a 3 meter long Python, which is Kyra's pet is also back...

On December 1st, 1997 the single "Once Upon a Time" was released and it's a europop song with superb vocals by Kyra.

1998
Finally after more than 3 years since the first album was released the second album "The Return" was released in
January 1998. It contains 14 new songs and it's delightful mix of europop and the already well known Pharao style!
It's a must for all Pharao fans...

2001
Pharao is no longer under contract with Sony and according to Media Agency, Pharao no longer exists.
