Quarteto Em Cy is a real pearl in Brazilian music history and is arguably the most important female vocal group of the MPB. The quartet was originally formed by the four sisters Cyva, Cynara, Cybele and Cylene around 1959 and has enjoyed a prolific existence albeit suffering from many line-up changes over the years.

It’s extremely difficult to choose one particular record that would effectively work as an introduction to their rich discography but I guess if you want to comprehend or gain a great overview of an artist’s career you might as well go back to the very beginning.

So have fun discovering these swooning vocal harmonies over meandering jazz and bossa nova textures!
