At its essence Síncope Jãobim  can be considered a 3 minute history lesson on the beautiful genre that is Bossa Nova. In his  playful style Tom Ze and his partner on the track Andreia Dias  give you the greats of Bossa and Brazilian Music on a whole, mentioning the likes of Lyra, Jobim and Baden Powell.

Antonio Carlos Jobim

He even makes reference to Bim bom and the “birthplace” of  Bossa; Joao Gilberto’s sister’s bathroom . The inconsistently used conversational structure of the track and contrast in the vocals by Tom and Andreia gives the song an edge. Like the album on a whole Síncope Jãobim offers something different and its even a bit catchy.
