Sitti has successfully made her indelible mark in the music industry as the Philippines’ one and only bossa nova queen. She amazes the audience with her cool performance that makes her a sought-after artist here and abroad.
Almost a decade since the release of her double platinum album Café Bossa, she’ll revive it with Singles Bossa Nova Trio. It was a one-day, live recording session done al fresco at a house in Rizal with guitarist Erskine Basilio and percussionist Diego Martinez.
The tracks include some of the most popular Sitti singles which were given a fresh twist like “Girl From Ipanema,” “Tattooed On My Mind,” and “Para Sa Akin” with other favorites like “Sunday Morning,” “I Want It That Way,” “To Forget You,” and “La La Means I Love You,” to name a few.
Her carrier single “Ligaya” defines her life right now as a happily married woman. The song is also about her husband, Joey Ramirez, and is the most special among the songs she has ever written. Other originals are “Answers” and “All I Ever Wanted.”
Indeed, Sitti finds happiness being married and it reflects in her new album. Sitti hopes that fans would like Singles Bossa Nova Trio and support her just like before.
Singles Bossa Nova Trio is now available on CDs at Astroplus, Astrovision, and Odyssey outlets. It is available for download on Spinnr and iTunes. It can also be streamed on Spinnr, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer and Guvera.
