On the eve of her 80th birthday, Dona Onete, the grande dame of Amazonian song, returns with her third album Rebujo, a love letter to her hometown of Belém, situated deep in the Amazon. Rebujo brims with two music styles born in Belém: carimbós, influenced by African grooves, and bangues, a ska-type rhythm. Plus, there's a cumbia, brega ("romantic" music) and samba. Since the release of her 2017 album Banzeiro (MAIS 034CD/LP), Onete has become a superstar in Brazil -- she composed and sung the theme song for one of Brazil's biggest soap operas (A Força do Querer), been awarded the Brazilian Ordem do Mérito Cultural in recognition for her contribution to Brazilian culture, and her video for "No Meio do Pitiu" has an impressive 9.2 million views on YouTube. Outside of Brazil Onete has performed at Roskilde, Womad (UK, New Zealand, and Australia), Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival, and TFF Rudolstadt, and she is a global spokesperson for indigenous cultures. RIYL: Soundway Records, Analog Africa, Calypso Rose, Oumou Sangare. Mastered at the Carvery. CD version comes in a gatefold digipack; includes 16-page booklet with Portuguese lyrics and English translations; includes one bonus track.
