DescriptionIt’s a bit of jazz and bit of samba. It's Bossa Nova.
“Bossa nova has just the right beat and rhythm for me. It transports me to sunny Rio de Janeiro.” – Riku N.
Remember ‘The Girl from Ipanema’ and how she charmed you? Wish you could get away from it all and be in sunny, vibrant Brazil, for even just a few minutes?
The natural charm of Bossa
Not exactly mainstream jazz and not exactly samba. Bossa nova is its own charm. It’s a fusion of jazz and samba that emerged from the vibrant and sensuous music of Brazil in the early 1950’s.
Bossa gives you a musical respite that titillates your senses with samba beat and jazzy overtunes. A rich musical style rooted in Brazilian music but fused with samba and jazz to give a totally soothing musical experience.
Bossa, the new trend
Bossa nova, meaning ‘new trend,’ emerged from the upscale beaches of sunny Brazil. Since then it has permeated the jazz scene, latin music and even contemporary pop.
You could sing along with bossa or swim in its harmony. You could even do a little samba dance. Do what bossa nova lovers do: romp in the beach or frolic in the streets to the music. Or just live the whole experience through the music.
Bossa for all
Bossa nova’s unique musical style makes it very memorable. Once heard, you are forever charmed. Be captivated with Astrud Gilberto’s “The Girl from Ipanema” or entranced with the simple lyrics of the first bossa nova song, “Bim Bom” by Joao Gilberto. Be transported to Rio with any of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s masterpiece.
This ‘new trend’ in music was further explored by musical artists Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto and Eumir Deodato to give the world this charming, titillating musical style. Like Western jazz musicians Stan Getz, Charlie Byrd and others, you too will be mesmerized by bossa nova’s prominent use of the classical guitar.
Timeless musical allure
Be enchanted with bossa nova, whether in its folk-like simplicity or in more contemporary interpretations using more string instruments. Not a ‘new trend’ since it first emerged in the 1950’s, bossa is timeless in its appeal. Notice the unique singing voice of bossa nova singers? The unique singing voice is more nasal in projection compared to other music genres.
