  • Live Bossa Nova music “Ganza”: The Brazilian Lari Antunes resident in Barcelona will offer on Sunday her particular journey through the universe of the most divine carioca genre of all -the one that was invented more than half a century ago by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes- and by other accents of the most rhythmic galaxy of all. Lari will be accompanied by a saxophone, cajon and guitar, a quintet of the most respected Brazilian music in the diaspora. He has traveled half the world, has rubbed shoulders with musicians such as Toninho Horta and has participated in festivals. The most tropical and universal music of all will fill with sensuality the walls of the fiftieth-century cava every thirty days. Tonight at 19:00 at OD Barcelona, C/ Aragón 300, metro Girona (L4).
