Brazilian Pop is known in its native land as MPB (Música Popular Brasileira) which literally stands for Popular Music of Brazil in Portuguese. 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 the Bossa Nova. American rock, pop and jazz have also contributed to the sound; but at its heart, MPB has a distinct Brazilian sensibility, with themes reflecting the tensions, struggles and triumphs of the Brazilian people.
