WORLD CAFE LIVE - The Lounge (Upstairs) Saturday December 18, 2021 8:30 pm Tribute to Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 Minas Quintet (John Swana, Andrew Neu, Tom Cohen, Dylan Taylor) Reservations Highly Recommended
Sergio Mendes turned 80 this year! He’s had an outstanding career as a top-selling artist and record producer, and most acclaimed living Brazilian musician outside of Brazil. PBS honored him with a special program aired early this summer, watched by millions of viewers. Sergio Mendes broke many barriers - with many of his top 40 hits in Portuguese. “Brasil 66”, featuring singer Lani Hall, packed large venues and exposed a whole new generation to Bossa Nova and Brazilian Jazz. Sergio and and his band are still performing and touring and continues to inspire!
