Best Bossa Nova Artists

29 items ranked

This sultry Brazilian music is a fusion of jazz and samba. It started out as a small movement and is now growing as more people are getting hooked on this great rhythmic jazzy music. These Bossa Nova artists are definitely on top of this movement.

Bebel Gilberto Report Abuse
Bebel is the absolute favorite from this entire group. Anyone who I play her music for instantly run to add it to their ipod or order the c.d. She is the daughter of Joao Gilberto, which makes it seem as though true Bossa Nova beats run in their family.

Roberta Sa Report Abuse
Roberta earned a Latin Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 2008. Though thoroughly modern, her music incorporates traditional Brazilian musical styles and songs, and she is often compared to Maria Rita, another young MPB vocalist who sings traditional Brazilian music in a modern fashion.
