I adore bossa nova, and really like what Luciana Souza has done with it, maybe more than Bebel (Gilberto)! Plus she duets with James Taylor (who knew he was huge in Brazil!).
Please watch this interview with Luciana as she eloquently explains her bossa nova (in English) (includes some musical samples):
I love how she describes bossa nova as reflective and introspective, a poetic and lyrical musical interpretation of life. I think this is why I love it so well.
Five last words: Luciana Souza and Pablo Neruda.
Whose voice does she put you in mind of? Curious to see if it is the same as me!
Note: Don't miss my post about living Green-ish rather than as a Green Queen below! It ain't easy being Green!
