Senhora do Ó

ABOUT ME

Olá! My name is Andreia João, I am a Portuguese traditional singer, songwriter, producer, acoustic and electronic music lover.
This is my solo project with the support of ancestral and contemporary technology, invited musicians, friends, human voice and Mother Nature. Senhora do Ó is inspired in ethnic rhythms and shamanic melodies, harmonizing ambient backgrounds, also in Portuguese. Other major purpose is to revisit some of the Old Portuguese Songbook many references, the ancestral Portuguese oral tradition repertoire, lined within this new context.

While interpreter I sing Fado and songs related to my Iberian roots and my language. The Lusophony Cultures with ancient repertoires are my true scholl. I am also the singer performer Biotikka, for NOIDZ, a band from other planet merging Metal, Trance and Fado.

As a producer I found an intuitive process of music creation with several audio tools, where I try the most balanced fusion between electronics and accoustic environments.

Planet says
"Planet says" is a reggae song with an ironic approach. The planet tells us that we better worry about us than her because, as humans, we're probably the ones who will pay the worst price for our mistakes while she will keep on turning... She has been here so long-time before us and she will keep on bouncing on the different scenarios that will appear with the others planets and stars of the Universe. We are the little ones... It seems that our arrogance make us feel even able to destroy nature while actually we're probably just able to destroy ourselves.

Earth Vibrations
This is what may happen when our hearts find a direct channel with Planet Earth, we start to decipher what kind of vibration our Planet broadcasts. This song represents that channel. The attempt to forget that we are human, that we have borders that separate languages and cultures, so that we may be able to understand this mysterious telluric vibration that comes to us without pre-concept, without words, yet vibrating as a single Culture! ♥ "When Dyllann & Senhora do Ó first sent me their track I was immediately struck by the organic sounds of the Adufe and percussion with an entrancing rhythm. Senhora do O's earthy vocals used no words at all but still the song started to speak to me. I could hear a gritty bassline and dreamy electric guitar to go with it and really dived into the song to record those. It has become one of my favorite collaborations so far." Elly ♥

Agora (Now)
Life can be so busy that sometimes we forget to live in the now and to appreciate the beauty, and bounty of the diversity that surrounds us. Agora is a song that calls for us to appreciate the little things that make life in our ecosystem livable

Pachamama
Pachamama, from Quechua Pacha (universe, world, time, place), and Mama (mother, Mother Earth), is the maximum deity of the indigenous peoples of the central Andes, directly related to the Earth, fertility, the mother and the feminine. Like a goddess who has the gift of purification and cleansing, in addition to the power of planting love and forgiveness in everyone's heart, it is also considered the one who sows life in the world, contributing to a more harmonious and safer life on the Planet, providing sustenance, medicine, well-being and spirituality. This piece intends to remove all the filters that prevent us reaching the essence of each forest, of each plant, and make clear how we merge into one while breathing together. A piece that also contains water, earth, fire, air and ether, flanking some of the most organic instruments with which we cook music, and maybe because of that we don't feel it is in the most common frequency range, something that we can't explain very well until today! Perhaps this is why we feel it contains its own medicine that believes of diagnosing one of the strongest diseases of mankind, prescribing a lot of harmony and providing an urgent global awareness that facilitates that exodus reverser that separeted us to the old gifts of knowing how to interpret and respect the world around us, allowing us a path that manifest benefits for all sentient beings. A shamanic inspiration for unconditional oneness ♥

MOMENTO
Andreia: When I received the invitation from Dear Raushan to let me be inspired by her improvisation, at the time with the name wave.34, I felt massively flattered because it was an amazing free piece, without a squared pulse, and also because she entrusted me with something so huge, and without reservation she gave me her total trust! An improvisation with its own breathing and light, an improvisation made by such a unique instrument with which I had already felt enormous intimacy in previous partnerships! This piece quickly became the MOMENTO - Moment, in all my heart. For nothing is more important than that. The Moment. The Mountain. The Shepherd with his healthy and free flock, walking and making music. There it was my Portuguese root trying to recover this memory of this very special soundscape, which kept man close to his most assertive and unpretentious guide, Nature. Today in Portugal, the "Chocalho" - rattle, and the landscape it represents is considered Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, due to its tendency to extinguish itself and thus also extinguish this very important bond. Cause there was a time when man knew, loved, cared for and thanked each animal he ate at his family table, and it was not so long ago, remember? You must, please.

Breathe
We breathe happily, unconsciously and constantly while we are alive, and we often have this act and all that it involves, as guaranteed gracefully. As we breathe, we grow and learn to know and manage all our first needs. We soon understand that there is indeed something that is not seen but that has an immeasurable importance. They teach us to love trees because basically it is from them that a large part of our oxygen comes from, this precious as well as invisible good. And while Life happens we continue to breathe and tending to evolve as a species, but we also tend to forget the old lessons about trees and we started to lie to ourselves and to our children when we subscribe to any kind of energy that feeds on these precious Forest Founders Beings, even when that same energy says "green" on the label. In this last breath I thank you with a chest full of gratitude, for this magnificent human respiratory system that was created here among colleagues, where ideas emerged as the very act of breathing! Naturally! We are just beginning this collective breathing!. Finally I share the words of companion Elly, who as I usually say, won the song and showed me the best way to unfreeze my English. Muito obrigado a todos! ♥ "This song came out so etheral and fairytale like, reminding me of the most beautiful places in nature. Where one does not think or speak but merely breathes. Breathing is the first step from which smart plans and ideas can come to fruition."

Seeds of love
"Seeds of love" is song written by Bhoomitra from his experiences with organic farmers . We all grow up surrounded by agriculture but there is a big disconnect in our society as to what is happening to the seeds which are the very essence of our food . Technologies to control seeds have been invented and poisons are being placed now inside the seed so that it doesnt replicate. Seeds of love expresses the work being done by an organic farmer , where he sows his love and grows with the earth . He wants to be with Seeds which will recreate themself , thus he will be free and strong . But in his path there are struggles and problems along his way but he keeps on going . Song also reflects on journey of a seeker along the path. Song is a fusion of classical indian music with western music . To give it a feel of a global collaboration, working with Raushan we have brought Kazakh traditional folk elements . Ariel Bart brings New york energy with her Harmonica . Gaetan brings the soft delicate yet powerful Double Bass kind of like Belgian beers and chocolate blends. Andreia brings Portugese adventure spirit with her percussions to this track . The mood of the son is soft and reflective .

Adjiminvi
This song is about hope. We surely have reason to think that this world is going to ruin. That there is no hope for us and for the next generations. But we must always remain positive. Each of us should do our part to make a difference. In this song, it's a mother (earth) talking to her children. she tells them everything will be fine. She tells them that there is no reason to be afraid because the good that we want for the world is within us. If we have the strength to go deep down, we can change the world, make it better

Crescer
This music is born in Africa, it grows in Europe but it carries the global and urgent call that today sounds in the voices of children all over the world. Children claiming their own futures manifest themselves publicly as adults, demanding of us a greater and deeper reflection on the impacts that each attitude today will have tomorrow for everyone. Children who postpone school because they understand that without water school does not make sense. Children who grow up to re-teach us to love and preserve Nature. Girls and boys who are authentic hymns to Life, and who represent huge "open eyes" full of that hope that adults lost while growing up. Little beings who recognize their main mission from an early age, and who surrender to a perfect harmony with all beings and with Nature.

Tu Meri Sursari
"Tu meri sursari" is expression of love for the great River Ganga .She is a source of great inspiration and love for all of us involved in this piece. We have all been touched by her magical energy and culture. We all are aware of the dangers the Ganga and all the other river systems of the world face in this so called modern age. My teacher Ustad Asad Ali Khan had mentioned you can hear all the notes of the music sitting next to Ganga . In the Guru Granth Sahib the word "Sursari" is used for Ganga . Sursari means the Saree of Musical notes . The song explores a musicians loving relationship with the river , the time spent listening to its flows and music and singing along with it . This love makes us want to protect it and mother nature . We want her to reach the sea in purity and bliss and continue on her cyclical journey . This flow is her life and also ours . Its time humanity woke up to River consciousness .

Alfa
Alpha, the mature son of his Mother Nature who was not Her first manifestation of Life, but the first to understand some of Mothers deepest mysteries. Universal Mother of all Life, who forgives everything to Her son, giving him everything he will need to live. Even a virus if so.. Until the day when She herself needs Healing, for so many pains that She receives from this rational and intelligent son. Ours is the power to crystallize all Her beauty and health. The power to ask for forgiveness in all the languages of our “Babel tower”, or to simply abandon that request and start to compensate Mother simply recognizing Her importance, not just the mysteries. A daily gesture mirrored in us, sons, reflecting on our total dependence on Her well being. Hindi poetry represents the Mother's voice, who this time scolds and asks why we continue to call her Mother..Portuguese poetry represents your son's request for forgiveness. And all the sounds registered in the song such as all the timbres, felt this call inevitably. Gratitude Brothers and Sisters! Gratitude Mother!

Put your thinking caps on
If we do what we've always done, we'll get what we've always gotten. It is time to put our thinking caps on to think again. It is time to make new choices encompassing every aspect of the planet and beyond.

Corona Song
Sadly Corona is traveling our planet and it can make us ill and even kill us. At the same time, while 'normal' life is paused the planet is regenerating, the sky and waters are cleaner than before. With this song we aim to warn against this virus as well as point out it is an opportunity to find new ways to reconnect with each other and the planet.

Madawa - Encontra a tua Raiz
Sina Ubi composed this song expressing the enormous concern for the new generations of Tanzania, who are increasingly lost in their inner path, becoming dependent on drugs and jeopardizing their true freedom. The lack of self-esteem and emotional health in such young generations has become a global scourge for a long time now, which does not allow us to preserve anything or anyone, not even ourselves.. It is here that we move away from our roots and our life mission, fighting violently against life itself. There is an urgent need for a manifestation in favor of Life with self-love, making the best use of our intelligence and learning to use the chemicals that our own body offers us, without additions. A Manifesto sung with one voice that will restore healthy conscience to every human being, since we are the living species that eventually could use more of that same conscience in favor of the defense and conservation of ourselves and all that nourishes us and feeds Life. Our Mother Earth! A global call!

Uivo de Lamento
It is time to let go of the last lament. And let it sound in unison, human and animal, from the top of the most explored mountain, to the most burned tropical forest, passing through all the plasticizing seas and rivers. Plasticized also proves to be the world economy driven by capitalism that does not reward equality in this so-called, Animal Kingdom. Plasticized is also humanity and all its extraordinary existence, when subjected to this very recent invention in the entire history of the Kingdom. It is time to redesign economic systems so that they really serve people and the planet. Systems of biological inspiration and transformative innovation that fit the concept of regenerative cultures. To preserve and foster regional cultures and make new laws based on indigenous and aboriginal knowledge, which we all know can teach us a lot about how to live for many years without destroying the local ecosystem. Now we have the opportunity to mix the best of the past and the best of technological innovation, and move towards a world that serves everyone. This song also represents this dialogue, with Sina Ubi, a young musician from Tanzania very close to the ancient repertoire of his culture, and Raushan, from Kazakhstan, playing the shamanic instrument Kyl Kobyz, made with horsehair has a lively and natural sound, considered magical reproducing the wolf's fantastic howl. It was this instrument that ended up giving the definitive title to the song.

She gave us everything
Elly longed to create a song for the planet with just women. Now it sounds like a warm womb and the birth after. When we speak of earth we tend to say she is female, a mother. She nourishes and protects us, gives us air to breathe and healing herbs. She gave us everything, from the moment we crawled from the mud to our 'high' times in the high-rise buildings we live in now. Will it ever be enough?

Camino del Corazón
Much of our decisions, however thoughtful they may be, end up being more honest and balanced when generated in the heart. Still, many decisions turn out to be too much analyzed by the mind and mirrored in external objects, and it is here that we often commit the greatest crimes against ourselves and everything around us. This is the time to make vital decisions for the conservation of our Planet, and consequently all of the species that inhabit it. It is necessary to heal the mind, silencing it and spending more time with the heart, with its intimate beats, with the silences and inner noises too. Precisely in its depths, we will always find an answer that will never jeopardize Life, in all its contexts. After my travel to Peru to meet Mother Forest Amazon, my thoughts became also in Spanish for the "Camino del Corazón" our "Caminho do Coração" in Portuguese, after all, sister Cultures with the same blood, same language, and the strongest vibration that I brought with me to Portugal believes that we all can find this "Path of the Heart" sooner rather than later. Mariana Baraj, John Lumpkin and David Stauffacher, all accept the invitation to travel this path, passing between where I am Portugal, Argentina, USA and Switzerland, contributing with all their hearts!

Escuta a Mãe Terra
Andrea:" Each new day is an opportunity to awaken our true essence as human beings and to understand that we all have the same Mother, and that our umbilical cord was also connected to Mother Earth. It is time to listen to her sacred voice carefully and identify it with our inner voice as a child, realising that we both carry the same glories and pains, like mother and child. It is urgent that we grow sure of our essence and our role, so that her heart does not break. We may still have some time left to make some art and to scream togheter, but we must listen first. Escuta a Mãe Terra!" Sasha: After listening to the material of Andrea, and falling in love with her meditative and spiritual way of singing, I proposed a music track that could reflect (potentially) this qualities in our collaboration work. I believe we succeeded to create an original piece, that representing both of us in a perfectly stylistically and culturally "blended" song . Listen to Mother earth. I am glad we could lay our hands together for that matter. Enjoy the result! I am sure you will... ;-)
