Hampstead Jazz Club in partnership with PizzaExpress Live, proudly present the Nayla Yenquis Group 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.
Pizza Express Live is excited to announce the show of this breezing Brazilian band. When you listen to the free flowing sound of smooth samba, heavenly shift shaping vocals and percussion packing a punch, you will be transported to the effervescent sea shores and streets of Brazil.
