WMI PLUS At Home
WMI PLUS At Home experiences bring music from around the world into the comfort of your home. Renowned artists share their lives, instruments, and stories from their personal environments, bringing an intimacy and uniqueness to each event. These talks are led by fellow musicians, journalists, and ethnomusicologists.
We are thrilled to provide these events for FREE. If you are able to make a donation of any amount while registering for this event, it will help us to keep the music playing. THANK YOU!

Dom La Nena

Only registered participants will receive email instructions on how to join the event via Zoom online.
Dom La Nena is a Brazilian-born cellist, singer, songwriter, producer and arranger. Growing up between Porto Alegre, Brazil and Paris, France, La Nena also moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina to study cello under acclaimed master musician Christine Walevska. As a teenager, she moved back to Paris where she performed as the opening act for famed French singer Jane Birkin for several years.
Known for her creative cello playing and soft singing technique, Dom also loops and layers her instrument and voice to accompany herself solo live. She sings in several languages and has released four full-length albums and collaborations throughout her career. Her most recent recording Tempo is a lush, often dreamy album featuring only her cello, vocals and occasional piano, and is laced with that beautiful nostalgia the Brazilians call saudade. La Nena will be in conversation with music journalist Catalina Maria Johnson (Beat Latino) and will share a few songs, discuss her music, and take questions from attendees.
WMI PLUS and WMI PLUS At Home experiences are supported by a grant from Con Edison
