Donawa lives on a beautiful island in the Southern Caribbean
where he plays bass, guitar, and percussion, as vehicles
to produce and explore new avenues and blends of music from
his beach side studio.
third CD is a poignant creation titled "Aqua
Blue" and is about his love for open spaces and the beauty
of nature's endless vistas drifting softly away into
the distance. It's a sound byte of that profound feeling one
gets as our eyes wander across a majestic horizon.
"This is quite a different
album for me as it is not so much about me telling the story
but the stories telling themselves; I'm just along for the
ride in the sense of cocreating with something vast and soulful.
It is definitely a synthesis of all the music that has influenced
me. I listen back to it and hear the influences of Trevor
Horn from The Art of Noise, right up there with, say, Aston
"Familyman" Barrett and Pat Metheny, all in one song.
To me it doesn't sound forced. It sounds just as if it was
always meant to be."
Enjoy André's composition Big Calm;
a wonderful introduction to this very sensitive and gifted Barbadian
