World Music Mixtape

Dom La Nena’s, Ela, is a hauntingly beautiful debut that combines elements of classical string music, with subtle samba beats to create a unique form of cello pop. Her melancholy vocals, sung in Portuguese and occasionally, Spanish reflect emotional sincerity and depth that aren’t always so easily conveyed in artists as young as she is. Admittedly, nearly all of the lyrical meaning is lost on me as I don’t speak either Portuguese or Spanish, but that hardly gets in the way of my appreciation of her gentle, flowing vocal delivery. Each of these songs could stand as solo pieces, but the one that I can’t stop from repeating a couple times in a row on each listen through of the album is the title track, Ela. The raised heartbeat rhythm, gradual introduction of strings to accompany Dom’s cello, and her breathy vocal delivery, leave me gasping for air by the song’s end.
