About

Passarim is dedicated to recreating the classic ‘cool’ style of bossa nova
as it was born in Brazil in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

The quintet is based in Seattle and performs regularly at North City Bistro,
Serafina Restaurant and Egan’s Ballard Jam House.
The group has been featured on the Starbucks bossa nova
compilation In A Bossa Nova Mood.

Passarim is available to provide an understated and seductive
musical experience at your next party or function.
