Sergio Mendes & Special Guest
The 60th Anniversary of Bossa Nova
Bossa Nova was born on July 10, 1958 at the old Odeon studios in Rio de Janeiro when João Gilberto recorded “Chega de Saudade”—Bossa Nova’s first song and the beginning of a cultural phenomenon. Celebrate 60 years of Bossa Nova with multi-Grammy-winning producer, composer, keyboardist, and vocalist, Sergio Mendes, one of the most internationally successful Brazilian artists of all time. His classic song “Mas Que Nada” is the first Portuguese language song to ever hit Billboard’s US pop chart, and he has collaborated with pop artists like Justin Timberlake, John Legend, and Black Eyed Peas. Mendes will be joined by a very special guest.
