Sergio Mendes: The 60th Anniversary of Bossa Nova

Sergio Mendes: The 60th Anniversary of Bossa Nova

Presented by Soka University at Soka Performing Arts Center

“The sound of Brazilian musician Sergio Mendez has been a summer soundtrack for generations of listeners.” – NPR

Mendés first made an impact in collaboration with Antônio Carlos Jobim and Cannonball Adderley, and came to international stardom with his iconic band Brasil ’66. “The man who put go-go boots on Brazilian music and brought it to the world” (Billboard), Mendes jettisoned thoughts of a classical career when the distinctive jazz-meets-samba fusion called bossa nova began to evolve in the clubs of Rio in the late 50s. So put on your dance shoes and celebrate 60 years of Bossa Nova with the godfather himself! You may even glimpse the girl from Ipanema!
