Leny Andrade - Wednesday – Saturday, August 12 – 15 at 8:30 pm & 11 pm

Making the virtuosic and vigorous style of samba-jazz her main field of expression, Leny Andrade ("The Queen of Bossa Nova") acquired a solid reputation as a singer and improviser, acknowledged by the many top musicians who have performed with her, such as Paquito D'Rivera (who considers Andrade his favorite singer), Luiz Eça, Dick Farney, João Donato, Eumir Deodato, and Francis Hime. Leny Andrade's eclectic style became better defined with the advent of bossa nova, through which she introduced jazz elements into her singing. Finally, she embraced a synthesis of samba-jazz that refutes much of the delicacy and attention to the lyrics as proposed by bossa nova, in favor of a more energetic interpretation.
