Nossa Bossa Nova @ Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort and Spa
Aug 1 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Nossa Bossa Nova (Brazilian Bossa Nova sung in Portuguese) 

Nossa Bossa Nova performs authentic Brazilian Bossa Nova music sung in Portuguese. The duo, consisting of Theresa Levy (voice) and Mike Levy (piano/guitar), has a flair and passion in their Brazilian music that is impossible to ignore. Theresa is a second generation Italian American, born in Los Angeles. She’s fluent in several languages, including Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, and French and her fluency brings an intimacy and artistry to the lyrics of the classic Bossa Nova she’s become known for. Her musical partner, Mike, has a career that spans the world of music production. Mike is an accomplished bassist (acoustic and electric), pianist, guitarist, vocalist, and drummer. In the studio, Mike has been responsible for numerous projects ranging from producing rock and pop albums to composing music for film and television. A professional musician since the age of 15, Mike attended the University of South Florida and Berklee College of Music before leaving to tour with the Maynard Ferguson Big Bop Nouveau Band in 1993 at the age of 19. He landed in NYC where he spent his time playing with various funk, R&B, jazz, and folk artists. Theresa and Mike have been performing as Nossa Bossa Nova since 2002.
