Dona Onete brings her joyous stage persona and intoxicating blend of Amazonian, Afro-Brazilian and Caribbean rhythms. Flying in from Brazil, ‘the grande dame of Amazonian song’ brings her tales from the river Amazon after 2016 saw the release of her second album, Banzeiro.
Banzeiro is defined by Onete’s 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 Feitiço 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.
