The aim of bossaball has always been to mix music and sport to get the best out of those two disciplines. The word bossa, which is sometimes translated as style, flair or attitude in Portuguese, is commonly associated with Bossa Nova, a samba influenced type of Brazilian music. The name bossaball, therefore, fits perfectly as it aims to combine sports, music and positive vibrations.
