Book bossa nova jazz band

What is bossa nova? Not many know the word, but they know the sound. Girl From Ipanema, or Garota de Ipanema as it is called in the original language, is the best example of what bossa nova sounds like. The essential instruments in bossa nova are the guitar (usually Spanish/classical guitar with nylon strings), an airy saxophone and a relaxed, laid-back singer. If you add a bass player and a drummer, you have a perfect bossa nova orchestra that really creates a fantastic atmosphere.

Bossa nova originated in Rio De Janeiro in the late 1950s and musically is a mixture of samba and jazz. Behind bossa nova you find well-known musicians and composers such as Antonio Carlos Jobim and João Gilberto.

No matter how many musicians there are in a bossa nova band, you either have a saxophone or a singer in front. The difference between having a singer or an instrument in front is of course that with the vocals you get the lyrics and thus the words. If you 'just' book a saxophone in front, the music is instrumental and typically a bit more withdrawn and not nearly as attention-demanding. The ideal is of course to have both a singer and a saxophone, as the alternation between the two front figures is fantastic, dynamic and varying. No matter which crew you end up booking, with bossa nova music you get a sound that just works really well for many events and different target groups.

At Limunt, we book music from outside our large catalog of many hundreds of musicians. Do not worry. We have many skilled bossa nova musicians who play the coolest bossa nova and lift your event to new heights. Our over 100 jazz musicians are all skilled in their own niche - and we naturally book those who are best at bossa nova for the events where the customer wants bossa nova. We are proud to be matchmakers between customers and musicians and can guarantee musical experiences a little out of the ordinary.

Should I book a bossa nova musician or bossa nova band?

You love bossa nova and have come to the conclusion that you need to book some live bossa nova music for your party - but you are not sure whether you should book a single bossa nova artist, a duo or a trio or a whole bossa nova band? What suits your particular event best?

A rule of thumb is of course that adding more musicians sounds like more. There is simply more sound, expression, variety and dynamics the more musicians you book. If you book a single musician, or a duo or trio, you get a more compact and subtle sound, which is also suitable when the function of the music is not to get the party started, but more fun for a reception or the like.

If you choose to book bossa nova through Limunt, we will guide you to the right booking. For us, it's about helping you make the right decision about the number of musicians, playing time, placement of the music, etc. We enter the individual dialogue with curiosity and strive for the best music solution for you. For us, it is not about making you choose the most expensive solution, but finding the perfect music solution that is 'spot-on' in relation to your event, number of guests, the room, your budget, etc.

A single bossa nova musician – here the choice will most often fall on a guitarist – is the smallest constellation you can book through Limunt. The solo musician is recommended if you need to have background music for a long time – e.g. during a dinner – and want some gentle bossa nova to enjoy the company. The expression is relaxed and simple - and can be well suited to these kinds of parties where the acoustics are not so good. However, the whole experience becomes more than twice as good when you choose to book a duo instead of a trio. Here, you want to add a double bass player, to fill in some deep tones, or a sax or vocals in the front, to make the whole thing a little more outgoing.

Bossa nova is well suited to many events, as bossa nova jazz music is so broad, easy to listen to and loved by many generations. Bossa nova is often booked for events where you want an alternative to the more normal live music, such as the cover band, a hygge pianist, a traditional jazz trio, etc. 

Although bossa nova is a special genre of music, it is not at all incomprehensible og strange. Most Scandinavians know the sound of bossa nova, without knowing the name. If you book bossa nova music through Limunt, we will find the bossa nova musicians that best suit your request. That way, you can be sure to be matched with some musicians who play the kind of bossa nova you want. Some are for the completely traditional Girl From Ipanema and maybe even some newer pop songs interpreted in bossa nova, others want the completely original Brazilian sound with a lead singer who sings Portuguese. We are capable of delivering many forms of bossa nova - and our best advice is to contact us for a good piece of advice or two and of course a non-binding offer.

Bossa nova for a party – with or without a singer?

Bossa nova is played both instrumentally and with vocals. Whether you want a singer or an instrument in front is of course a matter of taste. But also about much else.

If you want a bossa nova band fronted by a bossa nova singer, you ensure that the music will be more outgoing. It will attract the attention of your guests - there is simply more to 'look at' when words are sung. Bossa nova with singing takes up more 'space' at the party, as the audience can listen to both words and notes from the singer. If you would like to book a bossa nova band that will create some attention and give your guests and you a good musical experience - book a bossa nova orchestra with a front singer. 

A bossanova band without a singer – typically with a sax – still sounds really good but is more withdrawn, anonymous and introverted. In this way, the music does not demand as much from the audience as a band where the vocals define the music. Do you want a more lounge-sound can you book a bossa nova band with e.g. a saxophone in front. Instrumental bossa nova is by no means boring, but music without words just gives a different experience than bossa nova with a singer.

Overall, you can say that there are many options when booking bossa nova. It all depends on your wishes, the kind of party you are having, your budget and your wishes for the music. With our more than 500 musicians, a great many things can be done. Contact Limunt for a non-binding offer on live bossa nova!

Give your event the sound of an afternoon on the beach in Rio De Janeiro: Book bossa nova music

Should you hire a bossa nova band? We can help with that! The sound of bossa nova makes everyone relax, the heart rate drops and you and your guests take it a little more calmly. If you want the sound of real bossa nova, we recommend at least a trio consisting of vocals or sax, guitar and double bass. It gives just the right laid-back and 'lounge' feeling and creates a perfect soundtrack for special outdoor events.

If it is to be a little more outgoing and create an even better atmosphere, we recommend adding a drummer as a fourth musician and then you have the sound of a real 'band'.  

Are you looking for the completely real and authentic sound, we even have a couple of singers who can sing Portuguese - then it hardly becomes more authentic.
