Brasil and Bossa Nova

Bossa Nova or New Trend originated in mid – 1950s in Brasil, as fusion of the melody and rhythm of samba and samba cancao with the harmonic vocabulary of American standards and the feel of “cool” jazz. Bossa Nova did not evolve or achieve popularity as a dance, but rather a a musical form. It received worldwide recognition with the release of the film “Black Orpheus” in 1959. It peaked its popularity between 1975 and 1963, right after its birth in Reio de Janerio’s south zone. Thoday while no longer the most popular genre of music in Brasil, it has found worldwide fame and is often associated with well known musicians such as Joao Gilberto, Vincius de Moraes, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luiz Bonfa….

Antonio Carlos (Tom) Jobim said :”music is the silence between the notes.”
