Pierre Aderne performs a selection of Brazilian music with Augusto Baschera, ranging from bossa nova to tropicalismo. Bossa nova, which emerged from a blend of African and European elements from both the popular and art-music traditions, gained an international reputation and became the musical flagship of a Brazil immersed in a cultural explosion during the mid-twentieth century. Tropicalismo, inspired by Caetano Veloso, combines bossa novawith rock, fado and other influences. The genre became a worldwide phenomenon with The Girl from Ipanema, before opening up to new influences.
