Bebel Gilberto to Perform at Park Orsula

Lauren Simmonds

On June the 28th, American/Brazilian bossa nova singer Bebel Gilberto will arrive in Dubrovnik for the first time.

As DuList reported on the 12th of June, 2017, this year’s edition of the Orsula Festival selects only the absolute best contemporary jazz, fun, bossa nova, flamenco and numerous other music genres. The organisers of the popular Orsula Festival will welcome the American/Brazilian songstress to the Pearl of the Adriatic for the very first time. The talented singer is due to perform on the 28th of June and will open the festival alongside its faithful organisers.

Bebel Gilberto has been attracting attention for many years now, and he has received various awards. The daughter of Joao Gilbert and singer Miucha, and the niece of the composer/singer Chico Buarque, she has been surrounded by creative, musical talent all her life and has been actively involved in it since the tender age of just 9 years old. Her career took off back in 1986, and in the year 2000, she released the Grammy nominated ”Tanto tempo” which proved to be wildly popular among world clubs.

Her electronic synthesis with authentic Brazilian rhythms and melodies has ranked her among the best-selling Brazilian artists of all time.

Bebel Gilberto will perform alongside the award-winning Dubrovnik jazz vocalist Maja Grgic with her trio. The timelessly beautiful Park Orsula with its stunning view over Dubrovnik and the local area has hosted more than 40 musicians over the past few years, including some of the world’s biggest names, such as Maria Biondia, Vlatko Stefanovski & Miroslav Tadic, S.A.R.S., and many others. Away from the hustle and bustle (and the heat) of the Old City, Park Orsula is a breath of fresh air during the long, hot summer nights and the priceless atmosphere provided by such an incredibly attractive location is second to none, to say the very least.
