Sergio Mendes

The legendary Sergio Mendes hits ATL next week as part of the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre Jazz Roots Series "A Night In Rio" concert on Saturday night October 26.  He called in to chat with Jamal Ahmad recently about his music, and this fascinating tour.

Brazilian Music is based on its indigenous Indian, African and European roots. The rhythms were refined in the 1950’s by composers João Gilberto, Antônio Carlos Jobim, and Dori Caymmi.
