Musica popular brasileira (MPB) of intellectuals and students came from tropicalia in diverse settings, integrating diverse regions widening the 21st Century Rio-Sao market with diversity and owing a debt to past generations. The current generation of Brazilian musicians has an assortment of multicultural talents broadcast by internet expansion and using MP3, last-FM, and Pandora technologies. YouTube internet music sends Brazil forward with imaginative, multicultural jazz fusion.
