What is Hotel Bossa Nova? A band with body and soul. Hotel Bossa Nova calls up that 1960’s feeling for life: the Bossa Nova groove of the „New Wave “ – a patented mixture of samba and cool jazz. It’s a languid summer night in Brazil, not too hot and not too cold, not too loud, or soft; just too short. Liza da Costa, Tilmann Höhn, Alexander Sonntag and Wolfgang Stamm have crossed paths before in different projects. They make it easy for their 'guests' to succumb to the charm and professionalism of Hotel Bossa Nova. The soul of Hotel Bossa Nova is Liza da Costa. A striking, half Portuguese, half Indian beauty with a generous portion of temperament: One moment about to burst with energy and the next so engrossed in her song that you could cry. Above all you notice that she is at home here, in Hotel Bossa Nova. And that you are welcome. Read more on Last.fm.
