Photographer's Note

Música Popular Brasileira (Brazilian Pop Music) or MPB designates a trend in post-Bossa Nova urban popular music. It is not a discrete genre but rather a constellation that combines original songwriting and updated versions of traditional Brazilian urban music styles like samba and samba-canção with contemporary influences: from folk, to rock, to pop, and to jazz. Signifying much more than the sum of the three words would indicate, MPB is a contemporary trend that has brought the world many renowned Brazilian artists, whose individual styles generate trends within MPB. The term can mean either any kind of music with Brazilian origins or a voice and guitar style that arose in the late 1960s. MPB can also be influenced by newer, non-traditional musical trends.
