Minas – Brazilian Bossa Nova 6-piece Band
A perennial Philadelphia favorite.
Saturday April 6, 2019 – 7:30pm
Minas blends north and south creating original music that is evocative and imaginative. Brazilian guitar and jazz piano. Male and female vocals. English and Portuguese poetry. Minas creates uplifting, subtle and complex beauty that transports listeners to another place and time.
Minas takes Brazilian and American roots to create a sound that is fresh and innovative, from ballads tinged with melancholic traits of Blues and Choro, to Folk coasting on the subtle coolness of a Bossa Nova pulse, to upbeat Sambas elaborated with instrumental jazz improvisation, scat singing and whimsical whistling. With recordings of original music and a collection of over 100 songs, Orlando and Patricia’s compositions have been compared to classics by Cole Porter and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Capturing the essence of great songwriting with memorable melodies, inventive harmonies, and poetic lyrics, the music of Minas is engaging and timeless.
