Bossa nova is a youthful celebration of romance and beach culture. Originating in 1950’s Brazil, the samba-style base of Brazilian music and rhythms mixed with American jazz and a new style of Portuguese lyrics. Kenia’s ability to translate these complex rhythms of her native Brazilian homeland into her own unique creations is renowned. Her beautiful, sultry voice will transport the audience to the sun-kissed beaches of Rio de Janeiro. This event will be performed in person at the Sampsonia Way Tent and live-streamed online via City of Asylum @ Home.
