London based Brazilian guitarist Josue Ferreira will be performing works by João Gilberto, one of the most important musicians in Brazil and credited with creating the bossa nova sound.

It isn’t hyperbole to suggest that Gilberto’s influence shaped the entire direction of his nation’s music; with the guitar as his preferred mode of expression, João Gilberto refined the then-popular samba, de-emphasizing the percussive aspect of its rhythm and enriching its melodic and harmonic content, thus creating what has now become known the world round as bossa nova.
