Mirla Riomar Quartet (Brazilian music)
Mirla and her band take us on a musical journey to Brazil. Their rich sound is influenced, above all, by music from the northeast of the country, where the culture fuses African and indigenous traditions. Ranging from samba to bossa nova and more, their repertoire includes both their own compositions and versions.
