Bim-Bom

Music by Jo„o Gilberto

Originally Performed by Jo„o Gilberto

"Bim Bom" is considered the first bossa nova song. It was composed by Jo„o Gilberto around 1956. The song wasn't recorded until July 1958 when Gilberto released it under Odeon Records along with his version of the first produced bossa nova song, "Chega de Saudade", which had been released by Elizete Cardoso earlier that year. Gilberto wrote the song on the banks of the S„o Francisco river as he watched laundresses passing by, balancing loads on their heads. Inspired by the swaying of their steps, Gilberto reproduced their rhythm with "Bim-Bom".

    Release Date: 1956
