Teatro Lua – Episode 2 – Coup d’Consolacao

The second episode focuses on Bossa Nova’s growth outside of Rio. Elenco Records continued solidifying a tight knit community of musicians in Rio; but their audience never reached a critical mass to gain distribution even in other major Brazilian cities. RGE Records became a major player in Sao Paolo, Audio Fidelity launched a Bossa Nova division, Paladium represented Belo Horizonte, and Rozenblit grew out of Recife. This episode explores the growth of Bossa Nova in the 1960’s outside of Rio.
