Popular Japanese-Brazilian bossa nova singer Lisa Ono will treat local music lovers a night of light and catchy tunes this Christmas.
Ono began singing and playing the guitar at age 15 and her debut as a professional bossa nova singer came in 1989. Her natural voice, rhythmic guitar playing and charming smile made her a huge success and popularized bossa nova, a genre of Brazilian music, in Japan. In 1991 her album “Nana” won the Grand Prix Gold Disk Award for Jazz in Japan. The 1999 album “Dream” sold more than 200,000 copies in Japan, and since then she has established a determined position in the Japanese bossa nova community.
Ono’s voice is famously soothing and her records were introduced to the Chinese mainland in 2004, immediately becoming popular among affluent urbanites and music enthusiasts. Every year, Ono tours China, giving sold-out shows.
She has performed with many top musicians such as Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Donato, and has been performing in destinations like New York City, Brazil and across Asia. Her appearances in Japan include concerts at the Blue Note Tokyo with Toninho Horta and Emilio Santiago.
2009年小野丽莎终于开始了她的首次中国巡演。“Bossa Nova女王”慵懒感性的招牌声音在北京、上海、广州、南京、重庆、杭州、深圳等地的音乐厅响起，让人们品味到了如“午后红茶”般的温暖甘醇。2009年3月6日，为迎接出道20周年，小野丽莎于日本一次推出两张专辑《CheekToCheek-里约爵士经典》和《LookToTheRainbow-L.A.爵士经典》。2013年，获巴西政府颁发巴西国家勋章（Rio Branco）。
In 2012, Ono served on the judge’s panel for the first season of the Chinese singing elimination show “Asian Wave,” which was broadcast on Dragon Television in Shanghai.
