I love bossa nova because of its romance, natural flow, and passion. I could even use the same words to describe a romantic summer vacation or a beautiful lover.
If you’ve got a summer lover, break out your finest bottle of champagne and dance with him or her out on the balcony or garden until the romance takes you to more private locations. If you haven’t found a lover just yet, then allow this soundtrack inspire you to keep your heart and eyes open for that someone special. Either way, allow the gentle voices and soft strings take you to a place of joy, playfulness, and relaxation and allow the horns to awaken your boldness and sense of adventure.
