Band: Combo Bossa Nova
Combo Bossa Nova is a sextet that brings to its audiences a taste of Bossa Nova, the Brazilian music that "seduced the world" in the late 1950s and early '60s. To this day the quintessential Bossa Nova hit "The Girl From Ipanema" is one of the two most performed songs in the world, second only to "Yesterday" by the Beatles.
Formed in the winter of 2010-2011 by four friends from varying musical backgrounds, CBN has quickly grown into a sextet that employs vocals, guitar, mandolin, flute, upright bass and percussion to perform the works of such Brazilian musical luminaries as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luis Bonfa, Roberto Menescal, Eliane Elias, and Marcos Valle (with a few surprises thrown in).
It's been said that an evening of CBN's latin rhythms and lyrics helps listeners to momentarily steal away to the easy, care-free life that was Brazilian beach culture of the 1950s and 60s.
