The Interview

Gav PauzeWhen did you first start singing?
Dada Yute: I remember that since I was very young I had a dream to be on the stage singing for the people with my big hair, but I didn’t know what to put in the music or what I should sing about, and I was a bald head, I didn’t have big hair, so I would just put a t-shirt on my head and sing loud na na na na. After I met the Rastafarian culture I discovered what I would sing about and how my hair would become long. When I was just a little kid in my home, I used to sing every time and everywhere, especially in the shower.

People at that time would say different things to me like “hey little boy stop singing” because I used to sing all the time and “oh you look so happy there my yout”, things like that. Professionally I started singing as the backing vocal from the band Lion of Israel from Brazil, then I started to sing lead vocal but I was always doing some harmony for different artists whether at a studio or live in a show.

Gav PauzeDid your family do to encourage you?
Dada Yute: Yes, in general my father and mother always supported my musical interests. At first I wanted to be a drummer, I looked for a drum but it didn’t work out because I didn’t have the right place to keep it and practice, so I changed for bass. Then my father bought me a bass and I started to play it, meanwhile my mom gave me my first acoustic guitar which I still have now to help me make music and sing. I always got encouraged by my family. I used to hear my aunt say constantly “this boy will be a singer, look at the way he picks up the words and sings without even knowing the meaning of the words” (when it was in English).
