Who’s the Bossa? is a group of musicians from three different countries, who share an equal passion for Brazilian music: Josee Koning (vocal) and Hans Vroomans (piano) from The Netherlands, Nelson Faria (guitar) from Brazil, and Daniel Pezzotti (cello) from Switzerland.
Who’s the Bossa? stands for an unconventional, contemporary approach to Brazilian music. Easily shifting from subtle swinging bossa nova to electrifying rhythms like frevo, baião and samba, they play startling originals as well as known and unknown gems of Brazilian music.
Who’s the Bossa? incorporates Josee Koning’s velvet timbre and refined phrasing, Hans Vroomans’ beautiful solos and accompaniment on piano and Nelson Faria’s outstanding jazzy Brazilian guitar playing. Daniel Pezzotti’s intense cello playing adds a smooth touch to the exciting Brazilian rhythms.
Who’s the Bossa? was born when Josee Koning invited Hans Vroomans, Daniel Pezzotti, Nelson Faria, bassist Ney Conceição and drummer Kiko Freitas, to play at a Tribute to 50 Years of Bossa Nova in The Netherlands in July 2008. Since then Who’s the Bossa? has played in various line-ups in Brazil, Switzerland and The Netherlands, always enchanting their audience with their superb musical performance.
