If the disposition of the people that I have met from the Philippines is anything to go by it must be a wonderful country.
We know the Philippines has produced probably the greatest boxer of the modern era in Manny Pacquiao and possibly the greatest billiards player ever in Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes- The Magician.
But Bossa Nova?
Here’s lovely Pinay singer, Sitti.
Maybe not pure Bossa, she does lots of pop covers, but nice and fresh and not the worst way to include a Philippines artiste in your record collection…
Her work is readily available- so just as a taster I’ve put together 10 songs- 9 well known Bossa Tunes and a song from Bacharach and David.
