Brazilian cellist and songwriter Dom La Nena brings her one woman band to Studio A for a mesmerizing performance of 2 tunes from her new album Soyo. Dom, Dominique Pinto, has significant classical training but has taken the cello into pop and global realms with looping and sampling. There is a whole wide world of influences into her own material. The songs have Latin rhythms, sometimes subtle, sometimes driving, and beautiful distinctive vocals. Dom is flawless in her performances preferring to play all the instruments whenever possible. For our session, she's on drums, shakers, cello and vocals. This is an artist with an interesting story and beautiful melodic songs.
