Dona Onete – Rich Mix, 17th July 2018

Dona Onete – Rich Mix, 17th July 2018

Description

Dona Onete brings her joyous stage persona and intoxicating blend of Amazonian, Afro-Brazilian and Caribbean rhythms to London.

Flying in from Brazil, Dona Onete – ‘the grande dame of Amazonian song’ – brings with her tales from the river Amazon after 2016 saw the release of her second album, Banzeiro.

Banzeiro is defined by Onete’s honest reflections on life, love and sex, as well as her delight in the everyday pleasures of life in the Amazon. Formerly a history teacher, folklore researcher, union representative, culture secretary and children’s author, Onete recorded her debut album Feitico Caboclo at 73. A cult figure in Brazil and an ambassador for Amazonian culture, the music she sings is a unique mix of rhythms from native Brazilians, African slaves and the Caribbean.

With Banzeiro, Onete again proves that age is nothing but a number as she ramps up the tempo with tracks such as the high-octane bangue (an Amazonian-ska) title track plus party-starting carimbo ‘Faceira’, amongst others. Gilles Peterson named her track “No Meio do Pitiu” as his top track from around the globe in 2017.

Banzeiro is the wave created by boats as they pass through the river, and considering that in just a few years Onete has gone from playing small bars in her hometown to thousand capacity shows across Brazil and some of Europe’s most respected festivals, Onete certainly seems to be riding the crest of this wave…
