In 1958 João Gilberto launched the Bossa Nova movement with his quiet, soulful and innovative way of playing guitar. This set in motion a movement which entered into the cultural imagination across the world. Today, Bossa Nova is the mostly recognized and appreciated Brazilian music genre outside Brazil and songs like the Girl from Ipanema has been featured in movies, productions and events globally.
What better way to celebrate this movement than celebrating the beginning of an international phenomenon than by throwing a 60 YEARS OF BOSSA NOVA ‘60s party as well as celebrating the 21st anniversary of the Centro Cultural Brasil-USA da Florida (CCBU).
On Thursday, May 17 party goers filled the Grand Bay Club in Key Biscayne in full 1960s dress. The live music was provided by DJ LUPA, a lovely Bossa Nova pocket show with Rose Max and Ramatis Moraes, the Brazilian food was complemented by a typical Brazilian dessert station created by Chef Adriana Assemany and the sixties outfits that many guests used, transported everyone to the magical years of Bossa Nova. Being a Brazilian party, it all ended on the dance floor, capping off a memorable evening.
CCBU is a member-based, non-profit organization founded in 1997, with the mission of disseminating Brazilian culture in Miami. Twenty one years later, CCBU is an award-winning organization that proudly contributes to enrich South Florida’s multinational community by sharing Brazilian culture.
THE 60 YEARS OF BOSSA NOVA was a Success!
