Ana Martins

bossa nova

Sometimes, we need to slow down. When my days get too busy and nights are too short, a little bossa nova can work wonders. Ana Martins, daughter of Brazilian composers Nelson Ângelo and Joyce, provides exactly that with her debut album Futuros Amantes. Her voice lightly wisps together a delicate blend of soft trumpets and violins, subtle drums, playful xylophones and pianos, all accompanied by acoustic guitar.

Warm up and relax with ritmos do Brazil.

    Hey great blog!

    I’d love it if you checked mine out, just started it a few days ago. I will be posting Mon-Thu every week, hopefully!

    I write mostly blurbs and ramblings about music every day, and I want to start doing some more album/song reviews when the time comes. I would really appreciate a comment or some feedback! :) thanks!

    This is rapidly becoming my-must-check-daily blog. Great stuff, most of which I’ve never heard before, which is a scandal. Great music deserves a bigger audience.

    Hey y’all-

    Great post! I was recently introduced to bossa nova by a Brazilian friend and I am currently studying samba (part of bossa nova’s roots). Anyhow, here are two albums I that have recently had in my playlist, for anyone looking for some more good bossa nova.

    Stan Getz & João Gilberto – Getz/Gilberto
    Bebel Gilberto – Tanto Tempo

    Keep up the great work. I owe Aurgasm for a lot of the best music in my library!
