When: Monday, February 22, 2016
Where: Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette Street, 10003, New York, NY, USA
Influenced by both Brazilian diva-esque pop stars like Gal Costa and outsider psychedelia such as Os Mutantes, Bebel Gilberto is an accomplished and multi-faceted singer who places little limitation on her sound. Though her music fluctuates amongst downtempo electronica and Latin Pop, her primary focus is in bossa nova.
Gilberto was born in New York City, New York, US on 12 May 1966; however, she grew up in Rio de Janerio, Brazil. Her parents are renowned bossa nova pioneers João Gilberto and Miúcha, both collaborators of the great Stan Getz. They are also of Brazilian descent, but were living in New York City around the time of their daughter’s birth. Her uncle, Chico Buarque is also an incredibly talented singer and songwriter. Provided Bebel’s strong musical background it is no surprise that she started sining at a very young age. Bebel was constantly surrounded by music growing up and became acquainted with several of her parents’ musical friends such as David Byrne, Caetano Veloso, and Stan Getz, the later whom she would go on to perform with at Carnegie Hall when she was only 9 years old.
