Jazz Concert by Eliane Elias

28 May - 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$200 – $520

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department has invited Grammy Award and Latin Grammy Award winner Eliane Elias to make her Hong Kong debut in May. In this much-anticipated jazz concert for music fans in the city, Elias will unleash her diverse musical talents by performing her greatest hits in her trademark performance style.

The versatile Brazilian musician was unable to come to Hong Kong as scheduled in November last year, and her jazz concert has now been rescheduled for May 28 (Tuesday). Elias, together with her longtime collaborative jazz musicians Marc Johnson (double bass), Leandro Pellegrino (guitar) and Rafael Barata (drums), will combine jazz, Brazilian, classical and pop music styles in the upcoming concert including “Quietude” that features bossa nova jazz balladry. With her alluring voice, virtuosic piano skills and impromptu live interpretation, Elias will bring the audience a jazz music evening filled with a Latin flare.
