Brazilian music and Funk find their roots in the drums and rhythms of West Africa. These organic elements form the musical DNA that is imbedded in all the music of the Americas. For one night, we bring together two award-winning stars to explore both genres…

Sergio Mendes – The Grammy® winner and undisputed master of Pop Brazilian Jazz created a new sound by fusing Brazilian roots with American Jazz to create Brazil ‘66. Today, he continues to push Brazilian Jazz even further by mixing in Funk and hip hop rhythms.

Candy Dulfer – Dutch-born alto sax star and Funk master made her name in the pop music world as a soloist for major stars such as Prince, Pink Floyd, Van Morrison and Dave Stewart. Her charm and talent even led to her own TV show, and now she returns to the stage to stir Vegas audiences at The Smith Center.
