Bossacucanova is a premeditated fusion of European electronica and Brazilian bossa nova. The group DJ Marcelinho DaLua, bassist Márcio Menescal, and keyboardist Alexandre Moreira offers a wild live performance that includes the beautiful vocals of Brazilian singer Cris Delano. Uma Batida Diferente, the band's latest album, features guest appearances by Celso Fonseca, Adriana Calcanhotto, and Roberto Menescal (a bossa nova pioneer who just happens to be the bassist's father).
