Songs from Javaland
DAVID LYNCH, of the Austin Chronicle, writes... 'Javaland picks up where Dionisio's 1994 debut Afro-Brazilian Rhythms left off: Brazilian-seasoned songs of the African diaspora. Here, however, the proceedings are tighter, yet more diverse. A veteran of Austin's lively international music scene, Dionisio's vast experience, fueled by an engaging personality, serves the tropical troubadour well...No sophomore slump here, just a genuine international talent and first-rate bandleader.' 'Songs From Javaland' not only features established Brazilian players (Sidinho Moreira, Robertinho Silva, Arthur Maia, etc.) but also several Austin, TX mainstays, including Alejandro Escovedo, John Hagen, Iluminada, Susanna Sharpe, Russell Scanlon and others.
