And Ana Tijoux’s Roja y Negro (Red and Black)
- Music Knows No Borders
Brazilian music legend Sergio Mendes brings his vivacious bossa nova to The Soraya and invites French-Chilean singer Ana Tijoux to open the evening with the debut of her new music, Roja y Negro. A giant in his genre, Mendes has recorded more than 35 albums and won three Grammy Awards. Tijoux made her name in the late ’90s as the fierce MC of hip-hop group Makiza, but her new album is an acoustic guitar celebration of Latin American folk music. With Mendes and Tijoux on stage, two generations of Latin American artists will share their passion both for traditional and popular music.
