Stacie Aamon / Press

“The New York singer Stacie Aamon first set foot in Salvador in 2006 to celebrate her 30th birthday. With a group of friends, they were in town for two weeks. Stacie remembers crying when she returned to the United States. "I saw that Bahia was a special place." ...She left her job at a hospital, where she worked as a music therapist, and spent five months here, studying Portuguese and discovering the city... Stacie returned to the U.S., but realized that the place of her spirit - and her sound - was here in Bahia. This time, she says she will "perhaps stay forever." The apex of the partnership with [Brasilian singer-songwriter] Dao happened during Carnival this year, when they headed up the trio Quilombolasoul. "It was surreal, wonderful, incredible and crazy." Her desire now is to establish a bridge between African-American music and Brazilian music...and to finally inherit a Bahian accent for her Portuguese.”

“...New York singer Stacie Aamon, possessing a powerful voice, she shares with us the influence of soul music, which can be heard on her disc, February Story (2009). Back to Salvador, where she has been two other times, Stacie takes the musical partnership with Dao, and presents interpretations of a repertoire that includes Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, plus songs by Gilberto Gil and Elza Soares, and her own original song "Warm Winter "...(translated from Portuguese using Google Translate)”

"Influenced by soul music, the singer-songwriter recorded an album in 2009, February Story, and has to her credit a Hollywood Music Award nomination and Media Award in the category "Best Female Voice" in 2010. Back to Salvador, where she has been two other times, Stacie takes the musical partnership with Dao, in songs sung in English and Portuguese that permeate the history of black music in Brazil and worldwide". (Translated from Portuguese using Google Translate).

"One of the guests of the evening, the American Stacie Aamon is back to Salvador for the third time. The partnership arose between her and Dao for over a year, when the singer from Bahia combined her American style with his band, since the singer has a strong influence of soul music. On Saturday, they sing songs in English and Portuguese that are part of the history of black music in Brazil and worldwide." (Translated from Portuguese using Google Translate)

"An Authentic representative of black music in Bahia... the work of Stacie Aamon had some similarities that resulted in a partnership with musician Dao that has lasted over a year. Influenced by soul music, this singer-songwriter recorded and album called February Story in 2009, and has to her credit a Hollywood Music Award nomination and Media Award for Best Female Voice in 2010. Back to Salvador, where she has been two other times, Stacie takes the musical partnership with Dao, in songs sung in English and Portuguese that permeate the history of black music in Brazil and the world" (Translated from Portuguese using Google Translate)
