About London Bossa Quartet

The hottest Bossa Nova band outside of Rio de Janeiro! We're ready to bring smooth, sultry and sophisticated swing to your event!
Brazilian band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

The London Bossa Quartet is comprised of the very best Brazilian musicians in the UK. Playing an exquisite repertoire comprised of a mix of classics by all-time master Brazilian composers such as Tom Jobim, Joao Bosco and Hermeto Pascoal, as well as music by the new generation of Brazilian composers as well as their own original compositions, the quartet creates a vibrant, virtuoso sound that takes audiences on a journey through Brazil that goes well beyond Bossa Nova. They provide a smooth and sophisticated sound perfect for high-end functions and the more discerning ear. They can provide either an ambient sound or be a real swinging centre-piece for any event. When it comes to Brazilian music, they truly are the ‘real deal’ and delight audiences with their freshness, sophistication and virtuoso musicality, giving guests a taste of dreamy Rio de Janeiro nights.

Luiz Morais’ London Bossa Quartet is far and away the best band playing instrumental Brazilian jazz In the UK. Featuring Luiz himself on 7 string guitar, Mateus Nova on bass, Sam Watts on piano and Marius Rodrigues on drums this is a band whose talent is matched by professionalism, a band you can rely on to make whatever event or show you are planning a success. London Bossa Quartet has played house concerts at Florence Latin Jazz on several occasions over the last 4 years and we have always been amazed. Whatever there is in this tropical Brazilian vibe we all love it and want more of it. Alison McGowan: Florence Latin Jazz, Islington, London

We booked the London Bossa Quartet for a blow-out summer garden party we were having and they were just amazing. Such fun music and their level is so high, my guests were euphoric to have such great music, perfect for summer! Our garden was transported to Ipanema beach for a few hours! The band were really kind and played loads of encores at our guests' requests and were really friendly and chatty with us and our guests. They arrived on time and were professional and courteous. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants sophisticated, fun and infectious music at their event!
