BOOTLEG LIKE JAZZ: BOSSA NOVA WITH RAÚL

In this installment of Bootleg Like Jazz, Raúl Orlando Edwards joins Q and discusses the history, major contributions and the impact Joao Gilberto had on Bossa Nova.

Audio Only version

In this installment of Bootleg Like Jazz, Raúl Orlando Edwards joins Q and discusses the history, major contributions and the impact Joao Gilberto had on Bossa Nova. We look into Bossa Nova’s rich origin story in the protests movement, similar to Jazz and later Hip-Hop, that would come to influence much of Brazil throughout the mid 20th century. Our conversation doesn’t end there as we dive into the exchange of cultures between many Black American and LatinX/Afro-LatinX musicians – most notably Quincy Jones and Rahsaan Roland Kirk producing their version of Bossa Nova in “Soul Bossa Nova”. Lastly, we spend time discussing the impact the nylon acoustic guitar and Samba had on the South American continent and beyond.
