A warm new sound that blends mellow, Latin and Latin-influenced music and artists to produce a sophisticated yet earthy ambiance.

Basilia is a sophisticated, cool, latin mix consisting of Brazilian music with a focus primarily on the Brazilian Bossa Nova sounds along with elements of samba and jazz. Brazilian music gained worldwide popularity in the 1950s and 1960s and today, Bossa Nova is one of the best-known genres abroad. The phrase Bossa Nova means literally "new trend". Bossa Nova acquired a large following in the 1960’s initially among young musicians and college students. Since its birth, it has remained a vital part of the standard jazz repertoire.

Within the artistic beach culture of the late 1950’s in Rio de Janeiro, the term bossa was used to refer to any new trend or fashionable wave. The Bossa Nova musical style grew from the sounds of samba, although it is more complex harmonically and less percussive. Bossa Nova emerged primarily from the upscale beachside neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro, and is known for having a cool sensibility. On Brasilia, you'll hear the melding of classical guitar, piano, percussion, and in some cases, lush strings. The selections feel very jazz-oriented, and the subject matter ranges from women, love, longing, and the best of youth.
