Nayla Yenquis Group is an international band playing MPB which literally stands for Popular Music of Brazil . Arising at the same time as the eclectic, innovative Tropicalia sound, MPB is a rich, poetic style that incorporates the sounds of both the Samba and Bossa Nova mixed with elements of contemporary jazz which has also contributed to the sound.
Nayla Yenquis Group's repertoire moves from bossa to samba and partido alto combining those other foreign influences of jazz and soul, presenting some of the major composers of this style such as Chico Buarque, Tom Jobim, Elis Regina and Gilberto Gil among others.
