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.
Ana Martins – Brigas Nunca Mais

Nice find! Love the mix of tracks you post.
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.
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!
another bebel…thank god for bossa nova’s offspring.
