92nd Anniversary of the birth of JOÃO GILBERTO │ "The musician of our lives"...!

On a day like today, João Gilberto Prado Pereira de Oliveira was born in a small town in the interior of the State of Bahia (BA) .

On June 10, 1931, exactly 92 years ago today, a musical alchemist was born.

A sound researcher was born, the creator of new, universal, timeless, sophisticated and transgressive music.

At the end of the 1950s, João Gilberto discovered the magic formula of musical sequences that seem simple and minimalist due to their apparent simplicity when listening, but that in practice are very complex, both in their harmonic composition and in his musical development.

The sequences of dissonant chords are protagonists within a " balanço " (rhythm) of syncopations in time and offbeat at the same time.

On June 10, a lover and accomplice of silence was also born. A silence that is very present in all his interpretations.

Far from the sea, in the shade of the tamarind tree in the square of the Juazeiro church, Joãozinho, a 16-year-old boy, played the violão and sang insistently, without knowing that several decades later the Tokyo public would give him standing applause for half an hour at the same time. end of a concert.

That boy could not even intuit that with just a violão (classical guitar) and his soft voice, he would change everything in Brazilian music forever, subsequently influencing other musical styles, mainly Jazz.

That music is Bossa Nova , a new way ( bossa ) of playing the traditional Brazilian Samba.
