  • Show Description
  • The London Bossa Quartet, featuring Luiz Morais on the 7-string guitar, are one of the most talked about and consistently sold out Brazilian performers in London at top venues including Crazy Coqs, Pizza Express Live Holborn and Piano Smithfield.

    They entertain with the classic music of Urban Rio performing melodies from Tom Jobim & Baden Powell, including well known favourites “One Note Samba”and “The Girl from Ipanema” and more, plus compelling music from many other Brazilian masters, together with Morais’ original compositions.

    London Bossa Quartet’s guest for this concert is Sara Dowling, voted best singer in the British Jazz Awards.

    Born in the North East of Brazil, guitarist, arranger and composer Luiz Morais has been based in London since 2010, forging an innovative and experimental rebirth of the Brazilian musical tradition in the wider landscape of Jazz and world music. He has played with some of the finest contemporary performers in the UK including Adriano Adewale, Gareth Lochrane and Georgia Mancio and has played with the legendary Gilberto Gil.

    Enjoy a party of toe tapping, hip swaying, finger popping samba and bossa nova music.

    London Bossa Quartet are Luiz Morias – guitar, Matheus Nova – piano, Sam Watts – double bass and Marius Rodriguez – drums
