The Luiz Morais Sextet, with Luiz on 7-string guitar, features the seductive vocals of Gabriela Kozyra,– “the best Brazilian Music singer in London” - The Hoste Of Jazz and the swinging flute of Rachel Hayter, playing an array of compelling rhythms supported by percussion, bass and piano.
Brilliant Brazil returns to TOP for another feast of swinging, finger-popping Samba, Bossa Nova and Choro music to transport you to the steamy summer streets of Rio de Janeiro.
