Bossa nova is a style of Brazilian music invented in the late 1950s by a group of middle-class students and musicians living in the Copacabana and Ipanema beachside districts of Rio de Janeiro. The name is translated as "the new beat" or "the new way". In Brazil, it became well known through the record "Chega de Saudade", performed by Joćo Gilberto and composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes. The record was released in 1958. The name of the style is attributed to Jobim.
