ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Winner of “Outstanding Brazilian Male Singer based in the U.S”
2007 Brazilian International Press Awards (Florida, US)

Eduardo Mendonça, multitalented Brazilian-American recording artist, producer, vocalist, composer, and musical arranger, was born in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. Mendonça traces his lineage to a royal African family bearing the hereditary title of Mama-Beka, prophet of the royal court. His grandfather, José Maria de Mendonça, who secretly maintained the Mama-Beka title, is pictured in a rare book, property of the Instituto Geográfico e Histórico da Bahia, which shows the elder Mendonça taking part in a crucial meeting discussing the need for freedom and established social rights for Afro-Brazilian former slaves.
