Synopsis

Product Description
João Gilberto invented the clean, modernist style that defines Bossa Nova; using the guitar as a percussive as well as a harmonic instrument. He and his contemporaries of the Bossa generation; Baden Powell, Luiz Bonfá and Laurindo Almeida variously combined samba, choro and Afro-Bahian ritual music with Bach, bebop, swing to forge the style that seduced the world and changed the course of musical history. All of these Brazilian guitar masters point to the inspiration of Anibal Augusto Sardinha, Garôto, who, in blending traditional Brazilian music with jazz harmonies, anticipated by years the Bossa Nova conception.
