Singer-songwriter Bella will be performing a bossa nova show at Che’s Lounge every Tuesday through August at 7 p.m.
Called Bossa on the Moon, the show includes original songs and classics of samba, jazz and blues that Bella swings on her guitar and her cavaquinho, a soprano Brazilian guitar.
On the set list there will be sweet summer treats like Samba Chocolate and Samba Noir by Bella, and standards such as The Little Boat and Fly Me to the Moon with a bossa arrangement.
The evening also will be a stage for Bella’s 10-minute musical play in Portuguese and English, talking about life and philosophy, called The Suitcase. Bella is also a puppeteer and a playwright.
Che’s is at 38 Main street (the back alley) in Vineyard Haven.
