My Producer’s Notes
Welcome once again!
It was a simple question that brought an unexpected response, and it came at the end of dinner with a music label exec in Rio de Janeiro. As we capped off our meal with a few fingers of aged sipping cachaça I asked, “When it comes to the rest of the world, what do you think is Brazil’s most popular music?”
He replied without hesitation: “Samba. It’s always Samba.”
His answer surprised me, not only because of its immediate arrival but also because I had not even considered it against my own firmly held opinion: Bossa Nova.
My point is that Bossa Nova is a worldwide musical phenomenon – has been for decades. But now it’s time to tune in to Bossa’s future. The New Bossa Nova. It’s an interesting story and you can read it here.
