Tobias Langguth & Generation 99
The blending of Portuguese and English lyrics has always fascinated me. Maestro Sérgio Mendes & "Brasil '66" had already been doing this years ago creating the beautiful hip beat bossa nova sound. I grew up with beat music in the sixties then got into jazz and finally fell in love with bossa nova forever. So it was quite natural for me to bring together all these different styles trying to move back to this special sound. Turn the numbers 66 upside down and you get 99: Enjoy the happy music of Generation 99! Tobias Langguth.
