"One of the best releases of 2014" CERYS MATTHEWS, BBC6 MUSIC

With her joyous stage persona and intoxicating blend of Amazonian, Afro-Brazilian and Caribbean rhythms, Dona Onete is one of 'world music's most entertaining recent success stories. Described by her manager as 'Grace Jones trapped in the body of Cesaria Evora', Onete's songs talk about the delights of seducing men, herbs that make your body 'shake' and her encounters with legends of the Amazon.

Onete sings carimbó, an indigenous rhythm and dance from Pará, the state of Belém, influenced by both African and European traditions, and which forms the basis of the more famous lambada and other Caribbean rhythms. She recorded Feitiço Caboclo aged 73, and an international release from Mais Um Discos in 2014 saw critics fall immediately for this sassy, saucy and sexy septuagenarian - influential French magazine Les Inrocks made the album one of their top 5 'world' releases that year and rapturously received festival performances at Womad UK, Paris's Cabaret Sauvage, Portugal's FMM Sines followed in 2015.
