Lisa Ono, one of the best Japanese interpreters of contemporary bossa nova, will stage a concert at the Shenzhen Concert Hall in late November, her debut performance in Shenzhen.

A singer, acoustic guitarist and songwriter, Ono was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1962 but moved with her family to Tokyo at the age of 10. From that time on she spent half of each year in Japan and half in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

She became a sort of "MPB (Brazil Popular Music) ambassador" in Japan, influenced by her father, who had owned a club while living in Brazil.

After moving to Japan, her father opened Saci-Perere, a Brazilian restaurant where she started performing mainly bossa nova and samba. Ono’s first album, "Catupiry," was released in 1989. She has not stopped recording since then, releasing one disc a year, mostly in Portuguese. She became famous in Japan after appearing in several TV commercials.

In 1991 her album "Nana" won the Grand Prix Gold Disk Award for Jazz in Japan. In 2003 she released the album "Dans Mon Ile," with the theme of a voyage to France and based on famous French songs.

Ono has performed with Tom Jobim and Joao Donato in Brazil, in addition to other performances around the world. Appearances in Japan include concerts at the Blue Note Tokyo with Paulo and Daniel Jobim, Toninho Horta and Emilio Santiago.

As of November 2007, she had released 22 albums.
