FEBRUARY 25, 2019 - JAM NIGHT AT THE WANCH 

We are so happy to be back at The Wanch for the Monday Jam night!!! 

We have been quiet from the past two years re-organizing, creating (besides the once in a while acoustic gigs) and now we are ready to unleash our new line up presenting our latest crew, Driek on drums and the newest addition to the soundscape is Rob taking the lead guitarist role.  We have our dearest Alejandro on bass that has been with us since the beginning and Ivy on vox and rhythm guitar.    

We bring you melancholy lyrics, intertwined with sexy dirty guitar,  moody bass that resonates along with the atmospheric beat of the drums that would unlock your thoughts to let the soundscapes of Himaya in.    "Through your eyes, let me in."  

I can't wait until our next performance and hope to see you soon!

Shoutout to Rob G who helped me out for this acoustic performance.    
Thank you once again for this awesome video courtesy of Hong Kong Rocks!

​COME BACK GIG AT THE PAWN LIVE SESSIONS! 

We were very excited playing once again at 'The Pawn Live Sessions' held 8th April, 2014. Unlike other stages or perfomances 'The Pawn Live Sessions' is unique.  The place is super cozy, not just for the guests who are sitting in the livingroom like set-up but also for us artists performing on stage. The faint guitar and the controlled sound made the event special, giving the place an intimate vibe.  Aileen and I were playing around on our harmony and the acoustic sound coming from the guitar and the keyboard resonated all around the room with its sweetest volume . It's definitely like performing at your own living room.   Thank you The Pawn and Little Bay for having us once again!  Till next time!

​TURING APPLES 'DEGRADING GRACEFULLY' EP LAUNCH!  

Congratulations to the 'TURING APPLES' on their first EP -'DEGRADING GRACEFULLY' launched at

The Fringe Club last March 28, 2014 under the label of Artefracture founded by Arthur Arquila.  

What a splendid job and kudos to all the members of Turing Apples for organizing it.   It was not only an EP launch but also a charity event aided for the LDN trust, a charity which has helped to provide low dose naltrexone to many auto-immune disease sufferers.   Half of the door ticket sales was raised for the LDN trust.  

 

A full line up that evening with the friendly duo 'Shantelene' opening up the show and right after were the energetic 'Kestrels and Kites', followed by Dark Himaya before the much awaited headliner the 'Turing Apples'.  Shout out to DJ Paul for spinning some fine tunes in-between sets and just right after the main act for some more partying and dancing!  Woot!    

 

 We're so happy to be a part of the event and nice to see a lot of familiar faces!  It's our first gig for 2014 and also officially introducing our new member of the family Martin Turner on drums.  Welcome Mr. Turner!  He is also the drummer for 'Papancha' band and the former 'Who Shot Holga'.  We're so excited to have him and we are now busy brewing few tunes for our second album.   So Stay Tuned!  

 

     :  mar 30 2014     

​SPRING IS COMING SOON!!!!   

Our gig at The Pawn on 4th of March has changed date and will be happening on the 8th of April  and hopefully to see you there for some fine acoustic tunes from our Album ‘Breaking The Spell’! 

Also....  we’re excited to announce that this coming 28th of March our friends "TURING APPLES" will be launching their first EP “Degrading Gracefully” and we're so excited to be a part of an important event and together on stage are the SHATALENE, KESTRELS AND KITES AND lastly DJ PAUL.

​​LATE GREETINGS and CLOCKENFLAP​!! 

Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!   How time flies its already the month of February 2014.  

 

We did not have a chance to talk about our Clockenflap experience last November, held at the West Kowloon Waterfront Premonade.   That was the highlight of our year not just being a Dark Himaya member but also as an individual.   We are so grateful of being a part and be chosen to play at the Van's stage Off the Wall.  What a great experience!  Clockenflap is one of the biggest events here in Asia and we are proud to have played last year.  We would like to thank our supporters, family and friends who came and watched our set.  It means so much to us seeing your smiling faces and 'head bangin' while we're playing!  There's nothing that beats the feeling when you know that your audience is enjoying your music!  Until our next gig hope you guys continue to support not just us but the local independent Music in Hong Kong!  Thank you!   

 

For now...  We're pretty busy rehearsing, working on some new songs and  hopefully to be released by the end of this year.   So don't think that we are not missing you....  Kisses are to be sent soon!!! *Check out our EVENTS page* : 12 Feb 2014
