Concert & Party
Music history live with the sonnyboy of Brazilian pop music.
When it comes to stylistic diversity in music history, Brazilian composer, arranger, songwriter and performer Marcos Valle is the measure of all things: In the 1960s, as composer of the second bossa nova wave, he wrote world hits such as «Samba de Verao«, reinvented himself in the 1970s with a jazzier, psychedelic MPB sound (Música Popular Brasileira), and in the 1980s composed a series of US soul classics together with Leon Ware. Compositions for film and television followed, as well as a partnership with Far Out Recordings that began in 1998 with the release of «Nova Bossa Nova« - one of more than 20 studio albums Valle has released in a career that has spanned over more than six decades. This year he turns 80 and we celebrate both him and with him at Summer Festival: Following Valle's concert, Hamburg DJs will spin dance music inspired by waves and beaches - including Gulosa from Possy collective, multi-instrumentalist and (Shellak) record collector Friedrich Paravicini and, last but not least, the party-tested sun-duo Júliø & Tussn.
