Vocalist Leny Andrade completes the 2010-11 Singers Over Manhattan series in The Allen Room joined by special guest multi-instrumentalist Paquito D'Rivera. In this program of bossa novas, sambas, and choros, they will showcase both the light and profound emotions of Brazilian music. As The New York Times put it, To describe Ms. Andrade as both the Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald of bossa nova only goes so far in evoking a performer whose voice seems to contain the body and soul of Brazil."
Please note: Rosa Passos, who was originally scheduled to perform on this date, is no longer able to appear due to circumstances beyond our control.
