Night in Rio with Sergio Mendes

Brazilian Music is based on its indigenous Indian, African and European roots. The rhythms were refined in the 1950's by composers Joao Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Dori Caymmi. The new sound combined samba and jazz to form a romantic mixture called Bossa Nova. These Brazilian stars define the genre. Sergio Mendes is a multi-Grammy winner and undisputed master of Pop Brazilian Jazz. Sergio grew up in Brazil but it was in the U.S. where he fused his Brazilian roots with American jazz and R&B to create a new sound that brought his unique musical blend to the world! Eliane Elias is a pianist, singer, composer, DownBeat Award Winner, and multi-Grammy Award nominee. Eliane Elias is known for her distinctive musical style which blends her Brazilians roots, her sensuous, alluring voice with her impressive instrumental piano jazz! Join us as we turn Atlanta into Rio!

    I was there. My daughter came in from Tucson just to attend the show with me. We had a ball !! Did it seem to anyone else that the crowd was a bit subdued ? The music was so infectious I expected everybody to let loose and dance like the rhythm commanded you! Few answered the call, but we did. We left sweaty and exhausted, got home and watched Black Orpheus to come down gently.
