Sérgio Mendes

March 20, Emirates Palace Auditorium

“Abu Dhabi Classics has returned and – as part of this year’s theme, The Traveller – global performers showcase their music from East and West. One of the highlights for me is Brazilian star Sérgio Mendes. His sound is timeless; a mix of light jazz, bossa nova beats, funk and contemporary soft pop melodies. Recently he’s worked with the likes of will.i.am, Erykah Badu, Justin Timberlake and John Legend. He even makes an appearance dancing along for one of the segments in Pharrell Williams’ 24 Hours Of Happy! I’m definitely going to struggle to stay seated for this one.”
