Videos: Bossa Nova Legends

Well, it's Friday once again. A long week. So let's tilt our seats back, put up our feet and jet down to Rio. Here are four fab videos of bossa nova founders that I found surfing around on YouTube yesterday:

Here's Luiz Bonfa playing his Batucada, Tenderly, Manhã de Carnaval and Menina Flor...

Here's João Gilberto playing his Desafinado...

Here's Roberto Menescal and Nara Leão playing O Barquinho, O Pato and Manhã de Carnaval...

And here's Carlos Lyra with his daughter Kay some years ago singing his Você e Eu...

Enjoy the weekend!
