"Girl from Ipanema" is 50 years old

"Olha que coisa mais linda/ Mais cheia de graça/ É ela menina/ Que vem e que passa".
It was a club in Rio de Janeiro, in August 2, 1962, that these words were first heard. It's been 50 years and "the meeting between the beauty of music and the beauty of the muse" made the Girl from Ipanema known for several generations all over the world. A song that, for lack of birds, only started in the second draft and, incidentally, was born bossa nova, but adapts to any other musical style.
