Bossa nova for this Tuesday
Hello, Hivers and music lovers!
I hope you had a happy Tuesday, although the day is not over yet on my side of the world. And I'm still on time to share some music today. Tuesdays are days to discover new rhythms and songs or listen to some old ones, as many of you already know. And all thanks to #threetunetuesday or #ttt started by @ablaze.
Foreseeing that things would be a bit slow at Hive today because of the hard fork, I was doing some other tasks at home. And I spent most of the day listening to music while doing them. I was listening to some Brazilian music, which has many rhythms that I like. And I'm going to share with you some traditional bossa nova songs, but with a more contemporary twist.
But before we get into the tunes, let me give a little background for those of you who are not familiar with #threetunetuesday. In the words of @ablaze, who started the initiative
The jist is as follows
Every Tuesday I'm going to share 3 songs which I like to listen to and I invite your feedback in the comments below. Better still, why not have a blast of your own Three Tune Tuesday and mention me in the post and I'll come and find the post and upvote it. If you could also use #ttt or #threetunetuesday tags that would be great. It'll be a sweet way for us all to discover new music. You'll also be in with a chance of winning the prize - more on that later.
You can find out more at ablaze's post for this Tuesday with his recommendations for this week, the #72.
I couldn't say when I started listening to Brazilian music, maybe in my 20s. And I liked new rhythms, but also the classics. I can spend hours listening to it, which is what I've done today. I've listened to a bit of this and that, and I have come up with more than one idea for #ttt. But today, I'd like to recommend a band that I discovered on Youtube during the pandemic, called NOVA.
NOVA is a Brazilian music band, but they are based in LA. They usually perform in private events according to their website. They play Bossanova and Samba with a fresh and contemporary feel.
Bossa nova is a style of samba developed in the late 1950s and early 1960s in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is mainly characterized by a "different beat" that altered the harmonies with the introduction of unconventional chords and an innovative syncopation of traditional samba from a single rhythmic division.

So today, I'm going to share three Bossa Nova songs of all time, but performed by this band and not in their original versions.
I hope you'll enjoy them!
Tune 1 - NOVA - Garota de Ipanema
Talking about Bossa Nova, the first song that comes to mind is Garota de Ipanema (The Girl from Ipanema). This song was composed by Antônio Carlos Jobim and the lyrics are by Vinícius de Moraes. It came out in the 60s and was a huge success by Joao Gilberto.
And while it's hard to like any performance of the song more than Joao Gilberto's, Nova does an excellent job.
Tune 2 - NOVA - Águas de Março
The following song is also a classic but from the 70s, Águas de março composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim and performed by the voice of Elis Regina.
This song has had many versions, and I love Nova's version.
Tune 3 - NOVA - Desafinado
And to close, I leave you with Nova's version of Desafinado by Antonio Carlos Jobim with lyrics by Newton Mendonça.
I like all three covers, but if I had to choose one, it would be this one.
This is all for today.
Thank you very much for reading!
Enjoy the music, enjoy life!
Aha,they have a pretty vocalist. Tried listening to the songs you mentioned and one thing I noticed it was lively.
Correct me if I am wrong but I bet you love this type, I mean lively beats.
As always I found myself going with it, just a little bit of head bang while liste ing 😁😆.
Yes, the samba, which is the music that gives origin to this softer rhythm, is very lively.
Happy Wednesday to you too :)
Nice collection sis! And I must say the third one gave me goosebumps (good ones!) It's kinda soulful.
I'm glad you like them, sis! Sounds like music for the soul to me.
Music for the soul indeed and yes, I do like them sis :)
I love it. Very calming. Those music are what we hear when we are having dinner after an event in the university.
I'm glad you liked it, Murakami :)

Great choice. They have a nice vibe and rhythm here. I haven't really listened to much Brazilian music but I quite like some songs by dulces pontes which is portugese. thanks for introducing something new.
I'm glad you like it. I haven't listened to Dulces Pontes, but I will search for her right now ;)

Kind words indeed and I really love how many like-minded folks from around the world now associate Tuesdays with music.
Nova are excellent and they could play a small gig at my house anytime! Really chilled out easy going vibe to them and the tunes they cover.
I'm glad you like it.
It would be cool to be able to have them playing at a little get-together, right?
Ya that would be pure class, I can just picture it..
