Bossacucanova is guaranteed not to make crosscultural pollination painful
Daniela Dacorso


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). — Rayme Samuels
