Goya Presents Memoirs of a Bossa Nova Aficionado


Bossa nova is a genre of Brazilian music, which developed and was popularized in the 1950s and '60s and is today one of the best-known Brazilian music genres world wide. A lyrical fusion of samba and jazz, bossa nova acquired a large following in the 1960s initially among young musicians and college students. The lyrical themes found in bossa nova include women, love, longing, homesickness, nature, and the best of youth. Bossa Nova has at its core a rhythm based on samba and combines the rhythmic patterns and feel originating in former African slave communities based in the Americas. The Goya would love to share the soulful side of this beautiful music in it's prime era for the second time.
