We are SONIDO BOSSA-NOVA with Brazilian, Gui Tavares on vocals and guitar and Trevor Antonio on percussion. We have been performing together over the past four years, at various venues in London, including Annabel's nightclub, Caffe Concert and Momo's. Sonido currently perform each month for diners at the famous Oxo Tower Brasserie. We can provide a cool and sophisticated ambience, with music which is vibrant, but not intrusive. From our experience of playing at the Oxo Tower, we are aware of the importance of the interaction between customers and musicians, demonstrated by positive comments about the music, directed at us from both customers and staff members.

Sonido Bossanova are hugely entertaining, performing their unique blend of Brazilian classics and songs of other genres in a Bossa Nova style. The duo perform for audiences in healthcare venues on behalf of charity Music in Hospitals & Care, the repertoire is uplifting, often” bringing the beach” to the most clinical of healthcare settings. They are fun and refreshing, encouraging toe tapping and participation from audiences both old and young. Some recent feedback includes: “The performers were excellent. The audience were clapping, singing and dancing along for the whole concert. The audience said they loved them, please could they have them back again” “Sonido Bossa Nova are fantastic and the audience have asked them to return sooner rather than later”

We have been booking Sonido Bossanova regularly for over a year now at the Archduke. As well as being reliable, they are very sensitive musicians, able to understand and blend in with the mood of the venue, providing just the right ambience to enhance our customers experience. Highly recommended.
