THIS WEDNESDAY APRIL 30TH
BRAZILIAN SINGING STAR TÉKA AND HER NEW BOSSA TRIO CELEBRATE THE RELEASE OF HER NEWEST ALBUM, SO MANY STARS, IN A PERFORMANCE AT THE GARDENIA, A PRIME LOS ANGELES MUSIC VENUE
On Wednesday, April 30th at 9 p.m., Têka and her players in New Bossa – guitarist Chris Judge and percussionist/flutist Ruben Martinez – will take her listeners on a journey into the heart of Brazilian music at its finest.
Featuring songs from her newest album, So Many Stars, Téka will delight with her Brazilian twist to American songbook classics as well as contemporary hits. Téka is an artist with roots firmly planted in the traditions of Brazilian music…the samba, bossa nova, choro and more.
Today, her music has become a fusion of the sensual rhythms and harmonies of Brazil with the sophistication and improvisation of jazz – a fascinating musical blend she calls New Bossa. She has performed and recorded with Brazilian legends Hermeto Pascoal , Gilberto Gil, Flora Purim and Airto Moreira.
Teka has also been featured as a soloist with The Long Beach Symphony Orchestra, The San Luis Obispo Symphony Orchestra, and The Glendale Pops Orchestra. She has headlined at International Jazz Festivals and performs regularly at some of Los Angeles, Boston and New York’s best known jazz venues.
The Gardenia is at 7066 Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. For dinner/show reservations, all (323) 467-7444.
Dinner at 7:00pm
Show starts at 9:00pm
