Robert Wyatt (born Robert Wyatt-Ellidge, 28 January 1945) is an English musician. A founding member of the influential Canterbury scene bands Soft Machine and Matching Mole, he was initially a kit drummer and singer before becoming paraplegic following an accidental fall from a window in 1973, which led him to abandon band work and begin a forty-year solo career.

Robert Wyatt lived in Spain for several years, and this experience informs many of the songs on this album. Dondestan (Revisited) is generally a very predictable album since it doesn't go outside the style and direction that Robert Wyatt had carved out for himself on his previous releases. There are a few minor experiments but they honestly don't hold a candle to what he did earlier in his career.
For half of these songs, Wyatt put music to the poetry of his wife Alfreda Benge; he wrote both words and music for the remainder (with the exception of "Lisp Service," whose music was written by ex-Soft Machine bassist Hugh Hopper). Roughly speaking, the collaborations with Benge are more abstract, and the other compositions more politically oriented, dealing with concerns such as Palestine, privatization, and the Communist Party (the wittily titled "CP Jeebies").
The title of the album is a phonetic rendition of the Spanish expression Donde están, .
