Don’t miss Brazilian Grammy Award-winning music legend Sergio Mendes as he spins his remarkable magic at this one-night only concert!
One of the first practitioners of the samba-based bossa nova, Sergio Mendes blends infectious rhythms and irresistible melodies from the great Brazilian Songbook with his always thoroughly modern arrangements and masterful production approach. This is nowhere more beautifully realised than in his latest recording, Encanto (Enchantment).
Accompanied by a cast of incredibly talented singers and musicians from all over the world, the undisputed master of pop-inflected Brazilian jazz, Sergio Mendes will share the intoxicating diversity and infectious rhythms of Brazilian music with the Singapore Sun Festival audiences this October.
