V.A. - Bossa Nova Brasil



Beco das Garrafas on Brazil‘s Copacabana is considered the birthplace of bossa nova. In a very modern social climate, the educated middle class experimented with new forms and expressions in music. Chega De Saudade, by Antônio Carlos Jobim and Vinícius de Moraes, made famous by João Gilberto, is considered the first bossa nova song. Gilberto and Jobim caused quite a stir with their new blend of samba and cool jazz. Their musical style and way of playing were quickly adapted by many young musicians. The music achieved its worldwide breakthrough with the film Orfeu Negro by Marcel Camus (soundtrack: Luiz Bonfá and Antônio Carlos Jobim). Subsequently, several American musicians visited Brazil and further popularized the music, such as Charlie Byrd and Stan Getz. Despite the language barrier, Portuguese-language pieces such as A Garota De Ipanema (The Girl From Ipanema) and Mas Que Nada became hits in the United States. After the military coup in Brazil, many musicians went into exile in the U.S., and with them the bossa nova and the associated relaxed attitude to life in Brazil went around the world.
