“Two centuries of his country’s rhythms flow through the fingers of João Bosco, one of Brazil’s most fabled guitarists, singers and composers. Now 70, he can stir up a whirlwind of speed and agility, breezing through tricky meters, harmonies and beats from all over Brazil.”– New York Times João Bosco de Freitas Mucci, better known as João Bosco was born in Ponte Nova, minas Gerais, Brazil in 1946. Despite his growing popularity outside of his homeland, Bosco remains thoroughly attached to Brazil; his music, though rooted in Brazil’s classic samba and bossa nova traditions, combines rock and roll, jazz and other ethnic styles in an eclectic brew that is as inventive and challenging as he is. This concert, presented by Rhythm Foundation in partnership with Urban Jungle, features João Bosco Quartet: Kiko Freitas (drums), Guto Wirtii (bass), Ricardo Silveira (guitar).Buy Tickets
