   In the early 60s a new style of music, bringing together Jazz Beebop and Brazilian Samba, takes over the world. Bossa Nova, with its lively and sophisticated rhythm, light lyrics, intuitive melodies and innovative harmony, has fallen into popular taste by putting Brazilian music in the radio waves and shelves of stores around the world. In 1959, João Gilberto releases Bossa Nova's first album, “Chega de Saudades”. In 1962, Brazil wins over the United States with a memorable Bossa Nova concert at Carnegie Hall and in 1964 Tom Jobim marvels the world with his “Girl from Ipanema” in a TV program where Frank Sinatra presents the composer singing and playing the song that has become one of the most popular tunes on the planet. To celebrate Bossa Nova’s anniversaries, Visom Digital brings a series of 12 x 26 minutes programs filled with music and stories that will bring you closer to this wonderful way of making beautiful music.
