Mardi Gras Jazz Night
Featuring the 1907 Concert Grand Mason & Hamlin Piano

Bong Peñera and his various band incarnations under the name Batucada are considered the main proponent of Brazilian-influenced Philippine jazz, particularly samba and bossa nova. Peñera and the Batucada band were influenced by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud Gilberto, Sergio Mendes, Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, and Deodato.

His landmark composition "A Samba Song" has become a world staple in bossa nova and have been performed as covers by Tadao Hayashi, Eddie Katindig, Sitti and Guarana. Among his bandmates were bassist Sonny Nabong, drummer Cesar Yumping , percussionist Nick Boogie, trumpeter Jun Salvame, bassist Paul Candelaria, drummers Fred Alidon, Jun Viray, Harry Tambuatco, guitarrist Edgar Avenir and vocalists Jacqui Magno, Pat Castillo, and Sandra Lim.
