Sassy Queen of the Amazon, Dona Onete is a one-off. At 80 years old, she is feisty, mischievous and saucy, her wicked lyrics and intoxicating blend of rhythms from Brazil, Africa and the Caribbean creates an octane energy performance on stage. Carimbos are her trademark – the dance and groove that was the precursor of the lambada. In Brazil, she is a cult figure and an ambassador for the Amazonian culture.
