As one of Brazil’s top-selling artists and with multiple Grammy nominations, world- renowned singer-songwriter Bebel Gilberto has captivated fans and earned critical acclaim worldwide as the torchbearer of Brazil’s Bossa Nova tradition. She is the daughter of Brazilian music icon João Gilberto, one of the artists to first establish the genre of Bossa Nova in the country. Her mother is acclaimed vocalist Miúcha, and her uncle the legendary Chico Buarque. Coming from this rich family tradition of Brazilian masters, Bebel’s influences are vast and eclectic. Her penchant for sonically transporting listeners to Brazil, with bright, incandescent Bossa Nova-infused melodies, lyrics about love, and her lilting performance style have earned her rave reviews of her live performances and a strong following among music enthusiasts.
The intimate performances will hold only 240 audience members per night, for a three- night engagement. This is a rare opportunity to see Bebel Gilberto up close and personal.
