CAVALISA was a bossa nova duo and standards group comprised of Cava Menzies (Piano, Vocals) and Lisa Forkish (Lead Vocals).

The music created by CAVALISA is infused with lilting vocal harmonies, lush chordal textures, lyrical piano melodies, and a rich palette of percussion and drums.

Both in song choice and arrangements, CAVALISA draws on the romance and beauty of bossa nova-infused jazz.
