From, Albi to Algiers and to the desert of Algeria until her adolescence then living between France, the Caribbean, the U.S.A. and Brasil for twelve years, this author-performer has travelled a lot. It is without a doubt the reason why her acoustic music is marked by jazz and bossa nova, which she is kneading in her own way, navigating us from one language to another, igniting the inner light of her heart and as a result our own as well.
A lot of work, rigour, and research to find the right word, the right note, the appropriate arrangement. Her inspiration nourished by giving her attention to others and her performance on stage to share all of it with the public. A show with Do is always a graceful moment. A time-space break which takes you on board to explore a galaxy.
Regarding her references she appears at the « Festival des Elles », the « Festival de Jazz de Saint Germain des Prés », at the « Européen » theater where she was accompanied by a string quartet from Paris Opera and at the « Festival des Enchanteuses » in the Triton theater near Paris.
Regarding her personal commitments: she is defending the cause of sick children by sustaining the non profit organization « Mécénat Chirurgie cardiaque » which operates on children with heart disease from all over the world
Mayra Andrade the singer from CapeVerde islands, said about her : « Do Montebello sings with beauty and sincerity the secret of words, the nuances of heart and melodies. She opens up to us the doors of a universe where we feel at one with life. Her song is a breath of humanity. »
What else is there to say? It can’t be said any better.

The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
