Bossa Nova was born on July 10th, 1958 at the old Odeon recording studios in Rio de Janeiro. That’s the date that Joa~o 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 Joa~o Gilberto who is steeped in Bossa Nova music, having made her Carnegie Hall debut at age 9 on a Bossa Nova program with her mother, the singer Miu´cha, and saxophonist Stan Getz.
