MPB stands for Música Popular Brasileira, which translates to Brazilian Popular Music. It is a genre of music that originated in Brazil in the 1960s and is a combination of traditional Brazilian music styles such as samba, bossa nova, and choro, as well as influences from jazz, rock, and other international genres. MPB is characterized by its use of complex rhythms, intricate melodies, and poetic lyrics. It is often associated with the Tropicalismo movement of the late 1960s, which sought to combine traditional Brazilian music with elements of rock, jazz, and other international genres.
