Donny Benet " Konichiwa"

We “ exposed” our audiences to Donny Benet
at one of our shows here in Miami about a
year ago. We’ve discovered that when we present
new music to our audiences , it should be
audio only, as videos seem to taint and influence
negatively songs that otherwise would be well
received. “ Konichiwa” ( 2017) from Donny Benet’s LP
“ The Don ” was totally the opposite. The video
sparked an immediate interest in this Sydney
based solo recording artist, whose musical
inspirations are obvious in his unique
style , which borrows heavily from Italo Disco,
and R&B from the 80s.
“Konichiwa ” is an ultra-smooth track , sung in a
whisper style, over a 4 on the Floor Disco/Soul
beat, complete with a very sexy sax solo.
A perfect video to introduce you to Donny’s cool ,
underdog persona. The burning sax player is
my favorite aside from the suit.
And No, he’s not that
“porno guy”
