Bossa and Samba Multimedia Series

Learn to play these popular Latin American styles

Samba is a musical and dance style which originated in Brazil in the early 20th century, with its roots in Africa. Later in the century (around the 1950’s), Samba gave way in the mainstream to a new style called Bossa Nova, which borrowed much from Samba rhythms, but also harmonic and melodic elements from French Impressionist music. It has beautiful and memorable melodies, presented in a gentle and accessible style, but with a strong directional rhythmic groove. This combination of elements makes Bossa Nova an effective vehicle for beginners to learn serious improvisation, rather than the complex melodies and often frenetic energy of modern jazz.
