"A good review on a major daily news paper (Italian)"

Testi profondi, che invitano alla riflessione. Ci si immerge nella magica atmosfera africana, parole di protesta contro un mondo specchio del consumismo … Note di una dolcezza struggente, che raccontano delle difficili condizioni di vita degli ultimi, in una scala di valori che merita di essere riveduta. Andrea Antonietti, - Il Resto del Carlino, 7 aprile 2007

"The most important daily newspaper in Angola about Dodo Reale (Portuguese)"

...O musico, que està em Luanda para a divulgação do seu trabalho discografico, teve grande aceitação do publico angolano... - Jornal de Angola, Nov. 3rd 2006

"This gives an idea of our music (English)"

It’s a weirdly wonderful mish-mash of different styles and sounds, with a dollop of addictive African chants thrown in for interesting measure. - this was called Gods of music, they closed down. Dead as a Dodo, I'd say! ;-)


We have released our first album "Les Nations Unies" in March 2007. It has been recorded in Angola and in Italy, and it features 12 songs plus 4 bonus tracks.

We' ve been published in 4 indie compilations, and are about to be distributed digitally. We've received airplay from various Italian and foreign tv's and radios (Brazil, Angola, Portugal, Italy, Austria, USA...) .

In our album "Les Nations Unies" you'll find marimbas, african choruses, surdos, violin, berimbau, kissange, flute and guitars. A bit of Italian music, a tiny taste of the Mauritius island, a full spoon of Angolan gindungo, add plenty of Brazilian flavourings, sprinkle some Old Europe, a touch of Latino spiced up with some Mediterranean feel.
Now you're done: this is the marvellous world of Dodo Reale!



Dodo lived in Africa, Angola, for five years. That's where his mestiço soul comes from, and also the magical protection and inspiration of the Dodo! Patty has been playing in notable Afrobrazilian orchestras and bands during the last ten years. You won't find anywhere else a duo able to mix up so many different colours and traditions altogether!
Influences? Salif Keita, Caetano Veloso, Bob Marley, Fabrizio De Andrè, David Byrne, Manuchao, Cesaria Evora, Nick Cave, Ivano Fossati, Brian Wilson, Chico Buarque, Prince, John Lennon...
