Nayla Yenquis Group is a Latin American band playing MPB which literally stands for Popular Music of Brazil . Arising at the same time as the eclectic, innovative Tropicália 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, with unique arrangements as well as original songs, they combine other influences such as jazz and soul. Moving from bossa, samba and partido alto the trio will be performing an enticing amalgamation of contemporary jazz and Brazilian song, presenting some of the major composers of this style such as Chico Buarque, Tom Jobim, Elis Regina and Gilberto Gil.
