Nova MPB (Nova Música Popular Brasileira) is a genre of Brazilian popular music that emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is a fusion of traditional Brazilian music styles such as samba, bossa nova, and choro with elements of rock, jazz, and other international genres. The genre is characterized by its use of electric instruments, complex arrangements, and a focus on lyrical content. It is often seen as a reaction to the commercialization of bossa nova and other traditional Brazilian music styles. Nova MPB is often seen as a precursor to the Tropicalia movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
