Sylvia Telles and a 'Bossa Nova' group"since Sylvia Telles was the most famous musician in the group at that time.
Bossa nova is most commonly performed on the nylon-string classical guitarplayed with the fingers rather than with a pick. Even in larger, jazz-like arrangements for groups, there is almost always a guitar that plays the underlying rhythm. Gilberto basically took one of the several rhythmic layers from a samba ensemblespecifically the tamborimand applied it to the picking hand.
As in samba, the surdo plays an ostinato figure on the downbeat of beat one, the "ah" of beat one, the downbeat of beat two and the "ah" of beat two. The clave pattern sounds very similar to the two-three or three-two son clave Break #2 - Sax In Space - Roby JC Project - Bossa Super Nova Cuban styles such as mambo but is dissimilar in that the "two" side of the clave is pushed by an eighth note.
