Sergio Mendes


Producer, composer, keyboardist, and vocalist Sergio Mendes is one of the most internationally successful Brazilian artists of all time. His hit single Mas Que Nada was the first Portuguese language song to hit Billboard’s U.S. Pop chart, and his signature sound mix of bossa nova and samba came to define Brazilian music. With a career spanning six decades, his enduring influence on the music industry continues to evolve. A three-time Grammy Award winner, Mendes has recorded more than 45 albums, with numerous gold and platinum discs among them.

Sergio’s latest studio album In the Key of Joy, released February 28, 2020, sees the legendary musician masterfully combining his Brazilian roots with high-profile contemporary collaborators to produce a timeless, upbeat celebration of life and music. In The Key of Joy also serves as a companion piece to director John Scheinfeld’s documentary of the same name, detailing Mendes’ life and career with interviews from past collaborators including John Legend and of The Black Eyed Peas.
