QUESTIONS ABOUT DÃANN MACALLA
1. Where was DÃ©ann born?
DÃ©ann was born in DeargbhrÃ©ag, Ireland.
2. Did she come from a musical family?
As children, DÃ©ann and her sister Gormlaith-Bain Macalla sang in their local church''s choir. Gormlaith-Bain eventually formed a singing group (along with DÃ©ann''s second cousin, Mayuko Oyama, and French singer Audrey AndrÃ©) called Trio Dinidae. DÃ©ann originally sang with the group, but had her own ideas and struck out on her own (DÃ©ann is quick to point out there is no antagonism between her and her sister).
3. How do you pronounce DÃ©ann?
The correct pronunciation is DAY-unn, with the stress on the first syllable. It is actually spelled with only one "n" ("DÃ©an"), but non-Gaelic speakers pronounced it like the boys'' name, so the second "n" was added to make it more feminine. Alas, this led to the name being pronounced Dee-ANN. But DÃ©ann takes it all in good stride and says either way is fine with her.
