JOAO BOSCO and his very talented band of Guto Wirtti on Bass, Kiko Freitas on Drums, and Ricardo Silveira  on Guitar, arrive from Rio and bring  the exciting rhythms of Samba and Bossa Nova to the  Birdland  stage with influences of Rock and Roll, Jazz, and other ethnic cultures such as, Arabic and African.  The basic ingredient of  his music is Samba, Brazil’s cultural own.  While singing in Portuguese, Bosco makes you feel that the sound of his words are as important as their meaning.

The New York Times said of BOSCO …”On acoustic guitar, he was masterly picking out the subtle syncopation of ‘Samba’ rhythms..a musician complete within himself..a ferocious performer with a kind of trans-state of precision and energy!”

He grew up in a musical family, his mother a concert Pianist and his brother a Composer.  Bosco concentrated on American Jazz, influenced by Miles Davis, Charlie Parker,  Duke Ellington and the great Brasilian musicians Dorival Caymmi and Antonio Carlos Jobim.  He worked with Vinicius de Morais and later Aldir Blanc who wrote his lyrics.  Joao Bosco  made many recordings, especially with the amazing vocalist Elis Regina, one of the greatest Brasilian vocalists of all time.

Bosco is revered for writing the protest song “O Bebaido e a Equilibrista” which became the theme song for Amnesty International.  He has made many recordings and has collaborated with greats  Antonio Carlos Jobim, Milton Nascimento, and  Dorival Caymmi  among so many others such as American guitarist Lee Ritinour.     Bosco tours  the world and carries on  the legacy of this important music of his country with his extraordinary  talent.

JOAO BOSCO says, “Music is everything to me.  I am alive because I am singing and playing .” ..
