"Bossa Nova Noites, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro!"

Legacy and Alchemy has over 2 decades of experience producing events of all types and sizes … around the world, including U.S., Japan, Europe, China, and Brazil. 

Our Bossa Nova Noites concert series introduced Legacy and Alchemy to the corporate world during the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games.  The series featured Daniel Jobim and Alexandra Jackson in concert with an all-star band.  They performed music from the catalog of the great Antonio Carlos Jobim, and from Alexandra's upcoming album - spreading wide throughout Rio de Janeiro the soul of Brazilian music - in the heart of the city that made Samba, Bossa Nova and MPB global phenomena.

With exclusive performances ranging in location from the Opening Ceremony of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics – where Daniel Jobim performed “Girl from Ipanema” to a 350 million person global television audience, to Alexandra Jackson’s appearances at the International Rio Media Center and on the NBC TODAY SHOW, to feature shows at the National Olympic Houses of Germany, France, Japan, United States and Denmark -- located in iconic areas such as the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon, to the Lagoa, Jardim Botânico and Barra da Tijuca communities, to exclusive rooftop lounges -- the Bossa Nova Noites concerts brought the best of Brazilian music and soul to an international audience at a time when the world’s attention was focused on Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympic Games.

"Brazil 2023 forward"

100 years ago in Rio de Janeiro ... Samba was born.  And Bossa Nova reached its peak a little over 50 years ago when “Girl from Ipanema” was named 1965 GRAMMY Record of the Year.

Going forward, Bossa Nova Noites is both a global concert series brand, and a festival brand.  Legacy and Alchemy will present the Bossa Nova Noites concept all over the world ... honoring and celebrating the wonder of Brazilian music for the enjoyment and appreciation by audiences.

Born as a global marketing and media project in 2016, the Bossa Nova Noites concept was designed to position alongside successive global multi-billion dollar audiences: 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, 2026 Winter Olympics in Italy, and the 2028 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.  

Globally, we have media coverage in over 200 articles in Brazil and internationally, including a feature on CNN International.

Now, with support of Brazil's music industry, Brazil's public sector, and over a dozen foreign consulates in Rio de Janeiro, including: China, Japan, USA, France, Germany, and others, we will tour "Bossa Nova Noites" around the world. 

Please stay tuned for updates to come.
