    Self-Proclaimed Carioca

    Hello! Call me Alexis. I am a huge fan of bossa and samba. I guess it's because i kind of grew up listening to it. My dad always listens to songs of Joao Gilberto and Djavan for as long as I could remember. He loves the whole syncopation and "desafinado" rhythm to...

    Bossa Nova

    Bossa Nova, the most soothing style of music. I have always wanted to live in Brazil, near the beach and every night, at the end of the day, go to the little local jazz club and listen to Bossa Nova artists performing live as I sip on Caipirinha. That would make all my evenings...
