Dota is jazz, bossa nova and socially critical singer-songwriting

dota_no danger_albumcover

Dota’s new album No danger may have been on the market for a good month. Nevertheless, I will not take a few eulogies! Especially because the exceptional band is going on tour soon! Dota Kehr and her band (formerly also known as Dota and the City Pirates), Dota, bring singer-songwriting and jazz into harmony. Also due to the temporary home of the front woman Dorothea Kehr in South America (Ecuador and Brazil) influences of Latin American music like Bossa Nova play a big role in the sound of the band. The exciting combination of jazz and bossa nova is garnished with socially critical, contemporary lyrics in German. In particular, the decoupling “borders” is mentioned here, which refers to refugee crisis and policy position. In about 50 minutes, the listener can drop in Dota Kehr’s pleasant voice and listen to their stories. The skilful junior jazz musicians, who provide the musical foundation, play with an impressive virtuosity. As an icing on the cake, the four band members did not miss the chance to experiment with alternative sound sources. The once again selfproduced album, recorded in its own label Kleingeldprinzessin Records, is enriched with some electronic beats and synthesizer sounds. No danger is very big ear cinema!

Here you can buy the album!
