Where to hear Brazilian Bossa Nova live music in New York City
He dropped the percussive aspect of samba to focus on melody and harmony. He sang in an almost spoken manner without vibrato and often accompanied only by his own guitar.
The music still has a driving Afro-Brazilian rhythm, but it’s presented in a very soft way, like a sunny day on an empty beach with your lover. You can drop Brazilian percussion underneath it, and put all kinds of things on top of it. That made it the perfect vehicle for jazz.
The legendary bossa nova concert at Carnegie Hall in 1962 launched the music globally. After the Beatles, bossa nova is still the world’s most popular music.
A few legends and a new crop of the year’s best Brazilian music.
