A highlight of the Wellington Jazz Festival, Brazilian songstress Alda Rezende invites you on a musical journey through the songbook of Antonio Carlos (Tom) Jobim.

One of Brazil’s most celebrated songwriters, Jobim was a primary force behind the bossa nova genre of music – a lyrical fusion of jazz and samba that became popular in the 1950s.

Best known for his enduring hit ‘The Girl from Ipanema’, Jobim has left a legacy of songs that have been performed by singers and instrumentalists around the globe.

Rezende, herself a household name in Brazil, pays tribute to Jobim in a sultry performance featuring a mixture of smoky jazz and toe-tapping classics.

Grab a glass of wine, sit back and let Rezende’s dulcet tones transport you to a late-night lounge bar in the back alleys of Rio.
