Bate Feliz is a Miami jazz band at its core, fusing the timeless language of jazz with the rhythms of Brazil, and elements of Cuban and other Latin American styles. Their music hums with the energy of the samba and the tranquility of the Bossa Nova, and is influenced by masters like Stan Getz, João Bosco, Luiz Bonfá, Stevie Wonder, and Celia Cruz, to name a few. The band also draws influence from their musical experiences in Rio De Janeiro, São Paulo, Ecuador, Mexico, and New York City, to name a few places. They were united in Miami by the esteemed UM jazz program, and play weekly in venues on Calle 8 and Miami Beach. Check out their music here!
