Bossa nova is a well-known style of Brazilian music developed and popularized in the 1950s and 1960s.

The phrase bossa nova means literally "new trend".

A lyrical fusion of samba and jazz, bossa nova acquired a large following in the 1960s initially among young musicians and college students.

The development of bossa nova is largely credited to artists working in the 1950s including Johnny Alf, Antonio Carlos Jobim and João Gilberto.

One of the first bossa nova songs was "Bim-Bom" by Gilberto.

The first bossa nova single to achieve international popularity was perhaps the most successful of all time, the Getz/Gilberto recording "The Girl From Ipanema".
