Combining samba, jazz, bossa nova, and blues, Bella and Daniel Waters will perform "Samba Chocolate" in a free performance this Sunday, May 4, at Che's Lounge. Inspired by a cold, dark winter, the two composed hot and spicy music for nylon-stringed classical guitar and for cavaquinho, an authentic Brazilian four-stringed soprano guitar. Special guest Eddy Larkosh will play the harmonica. For more information, call 508-693-8555.
