Brazilian Modern Music “Bossa Nova”
(Zushi, Kanagawa, Japan)
I think Brazil is famous for Latin music. In Japan, especially Bossa Nova is most popular. In fact, Bossa Nova is not popular in Brazil because it was just a 1950~60’s fashion, while Japanese or Europeans think Bossa Nova is Brazilian music.
Bossa Nova is a music genre born in Brazil. While traditional Samba music is danceable and passionate, Bossa Nova is sweeter, more refined, and more jazzy. But similar to traditional Samba music, Bossa Nova is sentimental and exotic.
I like listening to Bossa Nova when I am going to school, studying, and sleeping. Bossa Nova is suitable for every time and every situation.
