One of our favourite bossa nova radio stations, Bossa Nova Breakfast, has recently launched a Christmas special entitled “Sounds of the Season.” During the holiday season they will play a selection of christmas carols and specials performed by prominent bossa nova artists.

From their blog:

“The Sounds of the Season have returned to The Bossa Nova Breakfast! It’s our favorite time of the year, and to celebrate we’ve added gently swaying bossa versions of classic Christmas tunes to our unique mix of Bossa Nova, Samba & Brazilian Jazz. That means starting this week you’ll be hearing all of your holiday favorites with a bossa nova beat!
