bossa-nova. Brazilian term that first appeared in 1959 in a song ‘Desafinado’ by Jobim which was extremely complex in melody and harmony, but its innovation was its radical change in the rhythmic structure of the samba. In 1960 bossa-nova became associated with social protest. ‘Bossa’ in Rio slang means ‘shrewdness’.
