Cantando Uma Bossa
Dusa artistically grows in the surroundings of jazz clubs playing fado, bossa nova and soul music and takes part in the production of many musical projects achieved with many known artists. Dusa is of Indian origins and what makes her style exceptionally unique, is the fusion between the warm Mediterranean sounding of her voice mixed with a combination of other sounds taken from other parts of the world. In 1999, she begins an intense business cooperation with Mogol, with whom she publishes two songs: ('Nuova Gente', written by Mogol and 'Bella e Anima Latina', written by Mogol-Battisti) published by 'Hobby & Work' in co-operation with 'Radio Italia' radio station. During the same year, she introduces a new and sophisticated funky sound with the pianist and composer, Francesco Demegni. This appealing new sound, elaborated with the help of other musicians, becomes very popular and is particularly pleasant because of it's tunes, at times full of dance music though maintaining, at the same time, it's melodic and harmonic origins, typically pertaining to the jazz genre of the new generation. Dusa and her band, named after the singer herself, holds concerts of remarkable success throughout Europe (for example: the concert held for the BMW party and for the Messeguet Centre). In 2001, among 2500 participants and in the presence of important artists like Gianni Bella, Mario La Vezzi and Mogol, Dusa wins at the 'Festival del Provino' as best singer and for best unpublished works. This event marks the beginning of a strong and lasting friendship with Gianni Daldello, Director of C.E.T . and a friend of great International artists like Toquinho, Caetano Veloso, Joao Bosco, and so on. As a matter of fact, Gianni Daldello, enchanted by Dusa's voice, embraces a tenacious business relationship with her, which takes her around Italy performing in Bossa Nova concerts and not only because, his enthusiasm for her music is so strong that he vividly presses her to set forth towards the world of music at a more International level. On Christmas morning of the same year, Dusa participates at the TV show 'Uno Mattina' on the Italian channel 'RAI 1', presenting three unpublished songs. In 2002, Dusa organizes a visual and pictorial Musical - Art Show for CEPU, where she sells 300 copies of the New Age CD carried out with Francesco Demegni in three days. Dusa receives great praise also through the internet, where she is present on over 20 sites between links and reviews. 'Indy', which is still in the original version, is the most downloaded piece on MP3 world site for eight weeks straight. Her first CD entitled 'Dusa' and a video came out on May 2003, with the cooperation of Fabio Zeppetella as guitarist. She sells 2500 copies also thanks to the contribution of various Networks and local television, which showed great interest in playing the video. Besides, their music is regularly broadcasted in USA on Npsfunk Connectcut radio station. The complete album, produced by the 'Dabliu sound' record company, carried out by Francesco Demegni and arranged and produced Francesco Demegnie. This album is entirely in Portuguese and Italian and chooses sounds which are more open than the first. A complete and catchy World Music, where Dusa's Oriental and Pop music roots shine through.
