DOM LA NENA
Pop / Bossa Brésilienne
Dom La Nena is a Brazilian singer, cellist, songwriter and producer based in Paris. Having accompanied artists such Jane Birkin, Jeanne Moreau, Etienne Daho, Dom’s solo work has drawn comparisons as disparate as “a young Brian Wilson” (Wall Street Journal) and “a bossa Joanna Newsom” (Time Out New York).
Her debut solo album, “Ela”, was released during 2013 and immediately praised by the international music press including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Le Figaro, Les Inrockuptibles, Voir, O Globo and many other media outlets. Dom’s second album “Soyo”, an internationally flavored collection of indie-folk songs with wandering melodies and lightly layered vocals, was released in 2015 and co-produced with Brazilian musician Marcelo Camelo (Los Hermanos).
Dom sings in Portuguese, Spanish, French and English. Her lyrics touch upon feelings of longing, melancholy, and nostalgia of a childhood spent living in Brazil, Argentina and France. Performing in solo capacity alone on stage with her cello, ukulele, electric guitar, keyboard and percussions, Dom employs sophisticated looping techniques, layering vocals and instrumental tracks, building audio soundscapes that create a full band atmosphere in each venue.
With French-American singer Rosemary Standley (Moriarty), Dom La Nena created the duo “Birds on a Wire”. The two woman created a songbook of their childhood songs, from Henry Purcell to Leonard Cohen through Caetano Veloso, Violeta Parra, Tom Waits…
