jazz / MPB

Although it is far from Northern Norway to Rio de Janeiro, the band Marit Sandvik & Nova Onda has embraced the Brazilian music tradition and made it their own. Since 2013 the six musicians have developed their own sound, based on both jazz and MPB - Música Popular Brasileira. With its exquisite melodies and clever rhythms incorporated with extended harmonies, the Brazilian music combine in an irresistible potion that is both emotionally and intellectually appealing.
