"Once again, the vocalist has bridged jazz, international pop and Brazilian music and done so effortlessly, in one of her best works to date [On We Go]. ~ Jazz Corner
 
It’s hard to believe Kenia approaches any song with any trepidation. On her new album [On We Go] whether it’s the fast-moving, hip-swaying, “Summertime” or the languid ballad, “Melancia,” she’s confident, as if engaged in a natural conversation with friends against a fantastic musical backdrop that refuses to stay down for long. ~ Carol Banks Weber – AXS
 
Kenia, a consummate vocal talent who can deliver a song as well as anyone I’ve heard. Her voice is strong, her phrasing excellent, her delivery totally polished. And she makes you move… ~ David Zych – JazzTimes

 

Kenia returns with her most personal CD release to date. ON WE GO is at it’s heart a collection of songs that Kenia loves, songs that were written for her specifically, and songs for which she wrote lyrics

An outstanding line-up of musicians were gathered to bring Kenia’s vision to light – members from her first band Pau-Brasil – Paul Socolow and Mark Soskin are reunited with her and they joined by Sandro Albert on guitar, Adriano Santos on drums, and her son Lucas Ashby on percussion. Guest performances by harmonica virtuoso Hendrik Meurkens and acclaimed guitarist Romero Lubambo bring their own magic to the project.

 

Tracks include renditions of works by renowned Brazilian composers Ivan Lins and Antonio Adolfo as well as original compositions by Luiz Simas, Romero Lubambo, Rique Pantoja and Aloisio Aguiar.

 

Contemporary covers include Gershwin’s Summertime, the Beatles Nowhere Man and the cover track, ON WE GO, by  Eric Susoeff with lyrics by Lorraine Feather.
