With Rio de Janeiro as the backdrop, and one of the most famous songs in the world at its heart, The Bossa Nova Sunset Club is an intimate and engaging journey through one of the defining eras in modern music. Through songs and stories, the origins of bossa nova are explored in this very personal tale of musical discovery. The concert features some of the most recogniazble songs of the 50s and 60s including The Girl From Ipanema, Chega de Saudade (No More Blues), Summer Samba and Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars).
Performed by The View From Madeleine's Couch, Australia's longest-lived Brazilian music ensemble, featuring special guest artist, legendary Brazilian drummer Marcio Bahia, the band celebrates this beautiful music that enveloped the world, and has inspired them for 21 years.
