An Evening of Bossa Nova and Jazz with Aude Lhotelais at Dream Hotel, Bangkok.
French songstress Aude Lhotelais was the star attraction when the Dream Hotel in Sukhumvit 15 held an evening of Bossa Nova and Jazz on May 3rd 2012.
The occasion marked the final appearance of Aude before she returns to her native Le Havre. She performed songs from her new album, Duets, which is a joint collaboration with Carles GR and also features Pierre Boussaguet on several tracks.

Appearing alongside Aude on the night was Thai keyboard player Genius Michael.
The new album features 15 tracks that are a mixture of new material alongside classic jazz and bossa nova renderings. Aude is not only a talented musician (she also plays soprano saxophone) but she has had a murder mystery novel published in France, and has almost completed the follow up, the second in a three part series set in Le Havre.
Dance demonstrations featuring the tango and other Latin American routines were featured as guests relaxed with a selection of wines from Australia, South Africa and France.
