Bossa nova

(Languages of this post: Interlingua, English)

Bossa nova evolveva del samba, ma illo es plus complexe harmonicamente e minus percussive. Illo emergeva principalmente del plus prospere vicinitates presso le plagias de Rio de Janeiro, durante que le samba emergeva del bidonvilles (favelas) de Rio.

Il pare probabile que un parte del musica de George Gershwin, specialmente su “Cubanm Overture,” habeva un certe influentia sur Bossa Nova, tanto como altere stilos de jazz, como “cool jazz”.

Bossa nova esseva disveloppate in le Brasil in 1956 per João Jilberto. Le prime canto de bossa nova habeva le titulo “Bim-Bom”. Iste nove genere de musica popular brasilian deveniva melio cognoscite al publico brasilian e international con altere projectos per Gilberto e Antônio Carlos Jobim.

Le film “Orfeo Negro” in 1959 deveniva popular in le Statos Unite, e io mesme lo videva sex vices post que illo veniva a Los Angeles. Su popularitate immense inspirava projectos per Charlie Byrd e Stan Getz, e le popularitate de bossa nova in multe partes del mundo deveniva solidificate con collaborationes per Getz e Gilberto e altere projectos per artistas de jazz famose como Ella Fitzgerald (Ella Abraça Jobim) e Frank Sinatra (Francis Albert Sinatra e Antonio Carlos Jobim).

Forsan “Le puera de Ipanema”, cantate e in anglese e portugese per Astrud Gilberto es le plus famose de omne iste cantos. Illo ha un qualitate de coolness que pote trovar se in multe pauc altere compositiones de cool jazz, como “Take Five” per Dave Brubeck.

Un altere influentia importante sur bossa nova esseva le canto “Dans mon île” per le cantante francese Henri Salvador, que esseva un parte importante de un film italian “Europa de notte,” que esseva multo popular in le Brasil.

In 2005, Henri Salvador recipeva le Ordine de Merito Cultural Brasilian del ministro de cultura brasilian Gilberto Gil, in le presentia del presidente Lula, a causa de su influentia sur le cultura brasilian.

Un altere influentia sur bossa nova esseva le canto “Julie Is Her Name”, que Julie London cantava durante que Barney Kessel la accompaniava con le guitarra. Iste canto es specialmente ben cognosite pro le coolness relaxate de su vocalista reinfortiate per le appoio del instrumentos musical que produceva multe effectos interessante que inspirava le stilo usate per altere musicos qui sonava musica brasilian post que iste disco deveniva popular in ille pais.

Durante que bossa nova es principalmente un creation brasilian, illo non haberea evolvite sin multe influentia del stilos musical de altere paises, specialmente in Anglo-america. Isto es un indication de como le internationalisation del musica popular inter omne le paises de Europa e America ha producite su proprie stilos de musica que deveni un parte fundamental del cultura emergente international intra le paises de Europa e su ancian colonias.

Bossa Nova evolved from the samba but is more complex harmonically and less percussive. It emerged principally from the more prosperous neighborhoods near the beaches of of Rio de Janeiro, while the samba emerged in the slums (favelas) of Rio.

It seems probable that part of George Gershwin’s music, especially his “Cuban Overture” had a certain influence on Bossa Nova, along with other jazz styles, such as “cool jazz.”

Bossa nova was developed in Brazil in 1956 by João Gilberto. The first bossa nova song had the title “Bim-Bom.” This new genre of Brazilian popular music became better known to the Brazilian and international public with other projects by Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim.

The film “Orfeo Negro” in 1959 became popular in the United States, and I myself saw it for six times after it came to Los Angeles. Its immense popularity inspired projects by Charlie Byrd and Stan Getz, and the popularity of bossa nova in many parts of the world became solidified with collaborations by Getz and Gilberto and other projects by famous jazz artists such as Ella Fitzgerald (Ella Abraça Jobim) and Frank Sinatra (Francis Albert Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim).

Perhaps “The Girl from Ipanema,” sung in both English and Portuguese by Astrud Gilberto, is the most famous of all of these songs. It has a quality of coolness that can be found in very few other cool jazz compositions, such as “Take Five” by Dave Brubeck.

Another important influence on bossa nova was the song “Dans mon île” by French singer Henri Salvador, which was an important part of a 1957 Italian movie, “Europa di notte”, which was very popular in Brazil. In 2005, Henri Salvador received the Brazilian Order of Cultural Merit, from the Brazilian of Culture, Gilberto Gil, in the presence of President Lula, because of his influence on Brazilian culture.

Another influence on bossa nova was the song “Julie Is Her Name,” which Julie London sang while Barney Kessel accompanied her on the guitar. This song is especially well known for the relaxed coolness its vocalist reinforced by the support of the musical instruments that produced many interesting effects that inspired the style used by other musicians who played Brazilian music after that record became popular in that country.

While bossa nova is primarily a Brazilian creation, it would not have evolved without a lot of influence from the musical styles of other countries, especially in Anglo-America. This is an indication of how the internationalization of popular music among all the countries of Europe and America has produced its own styles of music that are becoming a fundamental part of an emerging international culture within the countries of Europe and their former colonies.
