Three generations of bossa nova stars will make Singapore swing to the much-loved style of Brazilian music that has seduced the world for 50 years. Singapore is one of just four global cities to host such an all-stars concert to celebrate this anniversary.
The line up includes bossa greats who have composed the genre’s anthems including João Donato, whose piano playing inspired the bossa rhythm; Roberto Menescal, composer of O Barquinho, who performed in the first ever concert billed as ‘bossa nova;’ singer and guitarist Wanda Sá; Marcos Valle, composer of So Nice – Summer Samba, probably the best known bossa song after The Girl from Ipanema; and Vinicius Cantuária whose breakthrough album Sol Na Cara paved the way for the nu bossa movement.
Let the masters of bossa from Rio de Janeiro take you on a journey through the evolution of a genre of music that sang of “the beach, sublime physical beauty and the unbearable lightness of being Brazilian.”
