Saturday, May 29, 2004BOSSANOVA
I'm into all kinds of music (except country) but if there were 3 kinds of music I'm really into, they would be: classic rock, reggae/ska and bossanova.
And in this country, its soooooo hard to find a group who can actually sing great Bossanova in English and Portugese. There's always Guarana but last night at the Penthouse Grill of Stone House Apartelle in E.Rodriguez Ave., I discovered someone much, much, much better.
SITTI AND THE CUBANO
When we got there, they were singing Pauline Wilson's, "Follow your road" and that made us frown. But right after, they started singing Sergio Mendez's songs.
Sitti's voice is orgasmic. Seriously. To top it all off, she's absolutely gorgeous and she could pass for a model if she wanted to. She reminded me of a young Lucia Santiago. The Cubano is also good (and he's fluent in Portugese). Only problem is, after a couple of sets singing purely Bossanova music, Sitti started belting out jazz songs I have never heard of (she gives a wicked rendition of Sade's, "Smooth Operator", though).
I'm guessing that Sitti isn't really into Bossanova music yet coz she'd make The Cubano sing some of the songs she doesn't know. I feel that she's still learning about the genre coz her voice is soooo perfect for it! She sounds like she's mourning in the most beautiful way ever imagined. I hope they quit playing jazz songs and focus on Bossanova.
Stone House is so NOT a place for girls night outs. The place
is full of D.O.M.s on the prowl. As in.
