"'Doralice' is one of those catchy sambas that's been played both in and outside of Brazil for decades," explains Laura Ann Singh, vocalist for Brazilian quartet Quatro na Bossa, "[It] was written by Dorival Caymmi, who was contemporary of Antonio Carlos Jobim, and was extremely influential in creating a uniquely Brazilian sound identity in the 20th century." Quatro na Bossa has been playing Brazilian styles of music including bossa nova, samba and baiao for the past decade. The group's performed at Dizzy's in New York with some Brazilian greats, including Duduka da Fonseca, Nilson Matta and Maucha Adnet, and worked with jazz legend Todd Barkan. Most recently, it was invited to perform on a tour celebrating Bossa Nova composer and singer Carlos Lyra. The band plays next April 26 at Ashland Coffee and Tea.
