“There has been no name more synonymous with the musical art form than bossa nova legend Sergio Mendes.” Phoenix New Times

“Bebel Gilberto has carved her own distinct niche [while staying] true to her roots.” The Adelaide Review

Bossa nova was born on July 10, 1958, at the old Odeon recording studios in Rio de Janeiro, when a João Gilberto recording marked the beginning of a musical and cultural phenomenon. In this worldwide celebration, two of its reigning superstars and their bands span the breadth of Brazil’s best-known musical style, transporting us to today’s hottest music clubs and the Rio beaches of yesterday. A multi-Grammy-winning producer, composer, keyboardist and vocalist, Sergio Mendes is one of Brazil’s most internationally-renowned artists of all time. Bebel Gilberto – daughter of João Gilberto – is a thrilling vocalist steeped in the genre.
