About to complete her 40-year career, singer Elba Ramalho presents a show in honor of Dominguinhos, her longtime musical partner. The Paraibana celebrates great hits like “De Volta pro Meu Aconchego”, “Gostoso Demais” and “Eu Só Quero a Xodó”, besides interpreting other celebrated compositions of the musician from Pernambuco. Considered one of the great interpreters of the songs of Dominguinhos, Elba Ramalho already recorded more than 30 songs of the artist.
José Domingos de Morais, better known as Dominguinhos, was an acclaimed Brazilian composer, accordionist and singer. His principal musical influences have been the music of Luiz Gonzaga, Forró and in general the music of the Sertão in the Brazilian Northeast. He further developed this typical Braziliane musical style, born out of the European, African and Indian influences in north-eastern Brazil, creating a unique style of Brazilian Popular Music.
He has performed with musicians such as Luiz Gonzaga, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Zé Ramalho, Toquinho, Elba Ramalho, Yamandu Costa, and Maria Bethânia. Some of his hits were recorded by Bethânia, Gil, Chico Buarque, Fagner and, of course, Elba Ramalho. He has received various prizes and awards, including the Latin Grammy in 2002 for his album “Chegando de mansinho”.
