Música Popular Brasileira, or MPB, is a term that encompasses a variety of musical genres and styles that emerged in Brazil in the 1960s and 1970s. MPB is characterized by its fusion of elements from traditional Brazilian music, such as samba and bossa nova, with influences from rock, jazz, folk, and pop music. MPB is also known for its lyrical and social content, often reflecting the political and cultural changes that occurred in Brazil during the military dictatorship and the democratization process.

One of the most prominent and influential groups of MPB is MPB 4, a vocal and instrumental quartet that was formed in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, in 1965. The groups original members were Miltinho, Magro, Achilles, and Ruy Faria. They met through the Centro Popular de Cultura (Popular Culture Center), a cultural organization affiliated with the National Students Union. The quartet initially performed songs by emerging artists who would later become icons of MPB, such as Chico Buarque, Nara Leão, Sidney Miller, and Quarteto em Cy. They also participated in several national song festivals, where they won awards and recognition for their vocal arrangements and interpretations.

MPB 4s discography spans over five decades and more than 30 albums. The group has collaborated with many renowned artists of Brazilian music, such as Toquinho, Vinicius de Moraes, Dorival Caymmi, Zé Kéti, Ary Barroso, Milton Nascimento, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Tom Jobim, Elis Regina, Djavan, Ivan Lins, among others. They have also recorded songs for childrens albums, such as Flicts (1980) and O Pato (1981), and provided voiceovers for Disney animated films, such as The Jungle Book (1967) and Dumbo (1977).

MPB 4 Discografia 33 is a collection of 33 songs that represent the best of MPB 4s career. The songs were selected by the group members themselves and remastered for this special edition. The collection includes classics such as Roda Viva (1967), Amigo é Pra Essas Coisas (1972), Cicatrizes (1972), Partido Alto (1972), Pesadelo (1972), Vira Virou (1980), Amor e Paz (1986), among others. The collection also features some rare and unreleased tracks, such as Onde Está Você (1968), A Lua e o Conhaque (1973), Aquarela do Brasil (1983), and O Que Será (A Flor da Pele) (1993).

MPB 4 Discografia 33 is a tribute to the masters of Música Popular Brasileira who have inspired generations of musicians and listeners with their talent and creativity. It is also a celebration of MPB 4s legacy as one of the most important and influential groups of Brazilian music history.

MPB 4s musical style is characterized by its vocal harmony, instrumental versatility, and eclectic repertoire. The group has explored various genres and rhythms of Brazilian music, such as samba, choro, baião, frevo, maracatu, xote, forró, and bossa nova. They have also incorporated elements from other musical traditions, such as jazz, rock, pop, folk, and classical music. The groups vocal arrangements are often complex and sophisticated, featuring four-part harmony, counterpoint, and vocal percussion. The groups instrumental accompaniment is usually minimal and subtle, using acoustic guitars, cavaquinho, flute, percussion, and occasionally piano and bass.

MPB 4s lyrics are also an essential aspect of their musical identity. The group has sung about various themes and topics that reflect the Brazilian reality and culture, such as love, friendship, social issues, politics, history, folklore, humor, and poetry. The group has also expressed their opinions and views on the events and changes that occurred in Brazil during the military dictatorship (1964-1985) and the democratization process (1985-present). Some of their songs were censored or banned by the regime for their critical or subversive content. The group has also paid homage to some of the greatest poets and writers of Brazilian literature, such as Carlos Drummond de Andrade, Manuel Bandeira, João Cabral de Melo Neto, Vinicius de Moraes, Fernando Pessoa, among others.

MPB 4 has received many awards and honors for their artistic achievements and contributions to Brazilian music. The group has won several prizes at national song festivals and competitions. They have also received several nominations and awards from the Brazilian Academy of Music (Academia Brasileira de Música), the Brazilian Association of Record Producers (Associação Brasileira dos Produtores de Discos), and the Latin Grammy Awards. The group has also performed in many prestigious venues and festivals in Brazil and abroad. They have toured extensively in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. They have also participated in cultural exchange programs and collaborations with artists from other countries. 04f6b60f66
