The exciting sounds of Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66 come to life!
One can expect to hear hits such as Mais Que Nada, Pretty World, Upa Neguinho, Fool on the Hill, Like a Lover, Night and Day, Tristeza, The Look of Love, and others, including one of the few songs Mendes and Brasil 66‘s lead singer Lani Hall wrote together, the beautiful and lush So Many Stars.
Indicated for 3 Grammy Awards with the latest CD Bossa Nova Day, Minas was very much influenced by Brasil 66 in the early days. The group will be performing Sergio’s arrangements, as well as providing a taste of the original Brazilian/Portuguese version of most songs. Orlando Haddad and Patricia King formed Minas in 1978 at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. They proceeded to play all over the eastern United States before moving to Brazil, where they lived, entertained and traveled, absorbing the essence of Brazilian culture. In 1984 Orlando and Patricia returned to the United States and raised a family while performing and recording extensively, building their reputation as one of the most sought-after Brazilian groups of its kind.
