Part of Bossa Nova creation/invention should be credited to one of the French composer, singer and performer, born in 1917 in Guyana, Henri Salvador (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Salvador for French full version or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Salvador for short English one).
While touring in Brazil, one of his songs (where he added softness based on carribean rhythms) later inspired Jobim.
Still singing and touring at age 90, he should be better known outside of France…
Sincerely
DJM

You have a picture of Cristo on Corcovado and I need to ge the rights to that picture. Where did you get the picture?
I’m working on a book, an Adventure/Romance from a memoir by Kay Henkel (a very successful sculptress) when she and her husband went to Rio for a job and ended up living in and around Rio, Tres Rios, and Areal. She had adventures in Rio. They stayed from December 1945 thru Aug 1947. I want to include photos for the period to establish the image of the story.
I need to find the rights holder to the picture on this site so I can get a release to use it.
These photos are on the website.

Thank you.
William Claypool
