Sergio Mendes & Bebel Gilberto
The 60th Anniversary of Bossa Nova

Bossa Nova was born on July 10th, 1958 at the old Odeon studios in Rio de Janeiro when João Gilberto recorded “Chega de Saudade”—Bossa Nova’s very first song and the beginning of a musical and worldwide 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. Joining Mendes is Bebel Gilberto, the thrilling Bossa Nova vocalist and daughter of João Gilberto who made her Carnegie Hall debut at age 9 on a Bossa Nova program with her mother, the singer Miúcha, and saxophonist Stan Getz.

This show will run approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes with an intermission between artists.
