Anyone on the subject of the Brazilian music of the sixties automatically thinks of bossa novas by Antonio Carlos Jobim, one of the kings of the cool song. With the recent increase in interest for world music, the realm of Brazilian music that previously lay in Jobim's shadow is now being charted. In the early sixties guitarist and singer Jorge Ben Jor produced two masterful hits that went against the bossa nova current, namely Mas, Que Nada and Chove Chuva, songs that became known in the U.S. and Europe in a version by Sergio Mendes. In the eighties, Jorge Ben Jor traded his acoustic guitar for an electrical one, but during the Acústico concert here in The Hague he will return to the arms of his first love: the classic guitar. A romance revived!
