In a world of real boring cliche’ music, I’m just a dodo one man band. I write my own material and I wasn’t even afraid to go to Angola and play in front of the First Lady!
DODO REALE’S MUSICAL RECIPE IN A NUTSHELL
Many colours, just one rainbow. This is my motto.
Dodo Reale’s world-songwriting comes from d’autre monde. Various influence under just one hat: a drunken Manu Chao on a Placebo trip (with a laser pocket dictionary in one hand). 😉
ACCOMPLISHMENTS & FUTURE PLANS
I’ve summed up more than 300 concerts up to now.
A succesful crowdfunding campaign on Musicraiser will result with the release of my new first single’s video, “I want your love”.
I attended important exhibitions such as Popkomm and MEI where I was invited to present my showcase. I’ve also collaborated with various indie associations: Sub, Solo Roba Nostra, Sonoramente, Che torni Babele, NNARP, an Angolan NGO. In Angola I played in the presence of the Angolan First Lady, Ana Paula Dos Santos, on the TPA (Televisão Publica de Angola) and at the Residence of the Italian Embassador. Other venues in Angola: Auditorium Pepetela-Embassy of Portugal, Radio LAC, Radio Escola, Radio Eclesia, Elinga Theatre, Chà de Caxinde, Café do Mar, Miami, Centro Culturale Agostinho Neto, Hotel Trópico, Espaço Bahia, Galeria Celamar, AR-cafè, Bar do Disegual, Centro dos Refugiados UNHCR/COSV. I’ve been a member of Banda Larga (including former musicians of Modena City Ramblers and Caravan de Ville). I shared the stage and opened the live of various artists such as Modena City Ramblers, Cisco, Banda Maravilha, Ginevra di Marco, Il Genio, Francesco Magnelli, Duo Canhoto, Sabino Henda, Rogerio Dalù, Ray Tarantino, Irina Vasconcelos, Egle Sommacal, Zeduardo Martins, Bety Tavira and many others.
I’m just learning to fly.
A BIT OF HISTORY
I came back to Italy after 5 years spent in Africa. In 2007 I published Les Nations Unies, recorded both in Angola and Italy. After a period of musical research I chose a one-man-band philosophy and in 2013 I released Dodology. At this time I’m working on the new album and I’m working on a crowdfundign campaign that will result in a video directed by Corrado Ravazzini.
