Sergio Mendes concert at Smart Araneta; F1 Hotel deals | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022


WORLD-RENOWNED artist Sergio Mendes will take concert-goers through a breathtaking array of bossa nova hits on March 12 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.


Mendes’ concert tour celebrates the 50th anniversary of his seminal album “Sergio Mendes & Brasil ‘66.” This first album put Brazilian music on the map in the ’60s through the ’70s. Produced by Herb Alpert and Mendes, it had songs that integrated Latin jazz and bossa nova with elements of American pop.


In 2011, the groundbreaking album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and went platinum based largely on the success of its single “Mas Que Nada,” sung entirely in Portuguese by Lani Hall.


The album also appealed to pop audiences through Mendes’ versions of the Beatles “Day Tripper” and Little Anthony and the Imperials’ “Going Out of My Head.” Other songs included were “The Look of Love,” “Chove Chuva,” “Scarborough Fair,” “Roda” and “Night and Day.”


A prolific artist, Mendes has released 55 albums over the past five decades. In 2005, he received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
