Samba is a Brazilian Ballroom Dance with African and European roots. It is a sound based on two main beats.
Bossa Nova is a style of Brazilian music: similar to Samba music; however, consists of more harmonic and melodic complexity. It is a more lively sound that integrates melody/ harmony/ and rhythm together, and avoids trying to only focus on one musical element.
