Fact of the Day  

 

More Information  

During its rise in the United States, jazz eventually made its way down to Brazil. This influence and the traditional samba music together paved the way for bossa nova or the new way [source]. The musical genre gained world acclaim with the score to the film Orfeu Negro and the far reaching "Girl from Ipanema" in the mid 1960s. Bossa nova was eventually used to spread messages to the people with convoluted vocals and instruments. Such music/messages could sometimes get by the government undetected.
