Minas - Orlando Haddad and Patricia King

Husband and wife duo MINAS began at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, when pianist Patricia King asked Brazilian born Orlando Haddad to write lyrics for one of her compositions. Seven albums and several Grammy nominations later, Minas Has become synonymous with bossa nova in America.

On Thursday, November 29th, Minas joined J. Michael Harrison in the WRTI Performance Studio for a Facebook Live session.

Their repertoire mixes original songs with renowned Brazilian compositions. The group also mixes it up with fun covers, including some Beatles classics.
