Dom La Nena is a composer, cellist and singer born in Brazil, where she began her music studies at the age of 5. After studying classical cello in Buenos Aires and Paris, Dom accompanied various artists on tour including Jane Birkin, Jeanne Moreau, Etienne Daho and Piers Faccini.
Dom's solo albums are acclaimed by international press such as The Wall Street Journal ("A young Brian Wilson"), The New Yorker ("Every song is sacred"), BBC ("Amazing and beautiful"), NPR ("A sound that is gentle and haunting”) and The Guardian (“An enchantment”).
Since 2013 she has performed on the many of the most respected stages in the world (Philharmonie de Paris, Philarmonie du Luxembourg, Montreal Jazz Festival, Vienna Konzerthaus, Barbican Center, Southbank Center, etc.).
In 2021, Dom was nominated for the Victoires du Jazz in the World Music category. The same year, she was invited by the Musée d’Orsay to a carte blanche as part of the exhibition “Enfin le Cinéma!”. On this occasion she composed the music for films by director Germaine Dulac.
Since 2012, Dom has also been a part of the duo “Birds on a Wire” with singer Rosemary Standley (Moriarty). Together, they have toured Europe and released two albums (an eponymous 2014 album followed by “Ramages” in 2020).
Dom and Rosemary also collaborated with the Maîtrise de Radio France and Sofi Jeannin, the English chamber orchestra Britten Sinfonia, Philippe Jaroussky and Stephan Eicher.
Following the critically acclaimed solo album Tempo in 2021, Dom La Nena returns with a new solo instrumental album entitled Leon, named after the nickname she gave to her cello. Leon is an intimate instrumental work, conjuring a haunting and transcendental atmosphere — a declaration of love to her life-long accomplice, a return to the roots of great sensitivity.
