Victor Monsivais practice as a musician goes back for almost forty years playing Bossa Nova and Brazilian Samba classics, Jazz Standards, Latin Jazz and his own compositions in a variety of venues and ensembles including a couple of television shows. His repertoire draws from the greatest Brazilian composers and performers, such as Ary Barroso, Dorival Caymmi, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Newton Mendoça and João Gilberto, among others, performing their compositions in the original Portuguese versions. The same applies for the Latin pieces of his repertoire: Victor plays Beny More, Buenavista Social Club, Consuelo Velázquez, and all other Latin great ones in their original Spanish versions
