In 1970, legendary Brazilian pianist, producer and arranger Joao Donato was working temporarily in Los Angeles and recorded «A Bad Donato,» an album that would become a classic of Brazilian instrumental jazz-funk music.

Alongside Brazilian musicians like Eumir Deodato and Dom Um Romão, the album also featured U.S. jazz great Bud Shank. The album was one of many culminations of the influence of bossa, samba and other Afro-Brazilian styles on the global circulation of Brazilian music through Hollywood films and L.A. record labels.

This extraordinary evening at Royce Hall features performances by João Donato backed by Bixiga 70, and Bahia-raised Mateus Aleluia with L.A.-based Brazilian singer Thalma de Freitas, highlighting the importance of Brazil’s influence on the music of L.A., as well as the impact of L.A. on Brazilian music.
