João Gilberto TV Special from 1978 will make you realize how great he was

João Gilberto pioneered the musical genre of bossa nova in the late 1950s, as such, he is sometimes known as the “father of bossa nova”, a genre pratically ubiquitous in early 50s and early 60s musical landscape.

This TV special is a rare sight as the Brazilian TV Tupi went defunct in 1980 and its surviving archives aren’t organized or commercially available.
