Kenia and Pau-Brasil Miami jam together for a one-night-only show featuring hot beats from the new release "On We Go." With Diogo Brown on bass, Mike Orta on piano/keys, Silas Silva Filho on drums and Jerome Degey on guitar, it's going to be a KICKIN' show!
Kenia's beautiful, sultry voice invites you to revisit some familiar tunes and meet new songs - from gorgeous ballads to upbeat Brazilian forro, with some cool jazz on the side. Along with the new release, listen in for a few of her hits from the '80s and '90s; songs from "Simply Kenia," winner of the 2008 Brazilian International Press Award for Best CD of the Year; "Project Ivan Lins;" and "Kenia Celebrates Dorival Caymmi."
Once again, the vocalist has bridged jazz, international pop and Brazilian music and done so effortlessly, in one of her best works to date [On We Go].

It’s hard to believe Kenia approaches any song with any trepidation. On her new album [On We Go] whether it’s the fast-moving, hip-swaying, “Summertime” or the languid ballad, “Melancia,” she’s confident, as if engaged in a natural conversation with friends against a fantastic musical backdrop that refuses to stay down for long.

Kenia, a consummate vocal talent who can deliver a song as well as anyone I’ve heard. Her voice is strong, her phrasing excellent, her delivery totally polished. And she makes you move…
