A night of Brazilian Jazz with Cores do Samba

Thursday 21st September @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

A NIGHT OF BRAZILIAN JAZZ WITH CORES DO SAMBA - Thursday 21st September at Gonville Hotel

Transport yourself to a night in Rio De Janeiro with Brazilian band Cores do Samba (Colours of Samba) at this dinner jazz event at Gonville Hotel, Cambridge.

Cores do Samba explore the highly rhythmic and uplifting Musica Popular Brasileira – music that erupted from Brazil in 1960s from artists such as A.C. Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Chico Buarque, and Gilberto Gil.

This vibrant band is fronted by Brazilian singer Caru Lins, whose live shows embrace a great deal of charm and humour, including singing in Portuguese, as well as sharing her passion for the music from her home country.

Sit back and relax, dine, tap your feet, or even get up and dance during an evening of Samba, Bossa Nova and the infectious grooves of Brazilian music, including songs such as So Danco Samba, Girl From Ipanema, and Mas Que Nada!
