Tinta Bossa has built up an extensive repertoire in its existence, always finding her own way in this music, inspired by great Brazilian composers. The work of Antonio Carlos Jobim is still central, but also pieces of Carlos Lyra, Jorge Ben Jor, João Gilberto, Luiz Bonfa, Dorival Caymmi and own compositions from Erik Uhlenbusch, guitarplayer of Tinta Bossa, are on the program. By composing her own music, Tinta Bossa wants to endure this beautiful style of music in creating melodic songs with special harmonies and rhythms.

Tinta Bossa provides an impassioned concert with the colourful new songs and arrangements, together with an enthusiastic presentation. At a dinner, festival, wedding and many other events the sunny music of Tinta Bossa is very suitable !

Tinta Bossa also provides ' small ' performances at home, such as a birthday - gift !

Tinta Bossa is ideal for warm and exotic ( background - ) music at parties, receptions, openings of exhibitions, restaurants, conferences and the like.
