A concert of smooth summer sounds – Brazilian-inspired music in the company of one the world’s most well-known bossa nova singers and a truly international band.
Brazilian-born vocalist Rosalia De Souza has released a number of bossa nova albums including “Tempo” (2018) and “Garota Moderna” (2007), which includes perhaps her best-known song “Bossa 31”.
Rosalia De Souza, who has lived in Italy for many years, began a collaboration with Danish drummer Jonas Johansen in 2017. They have brought together leading musicians – Johansen’s long-time collaborator pianist Steen Rasmussen and saxophonist Hans Ulrik from Denmark, Swedish guitarist Mats Andersson and Canadian bassist Graig Earle – to create new music with a strong Brazilian vibe running through the group’s original compositions.
