Bossa Nova, Disco, Football Styles and More In This Week's New Releases

This week's styles are all about movement, celebration and dancing. From two new Premium Styles featuring bossa nova and classic 70's disco, to new styles from Yamaha Europe with
soul inspired pop, feel-good Caribbean vibes, and straight ahead rock and roll, there are plenty of new rhythms that will keep you glued to your piano bench and keep listeners out of their seats.

The Piano Bossa, Swedish Dance, and Safri Dance styles are new for the Tyros3, while Satellite Beat, Hope Party and Soccer Shuffle Rock are available both in one version for the Tyros3 and another for all other style compatible Yamaha keyboards.

Soccer Shuffle Rock - Between horns, distorted guitars and heavy drums, this style has all the ingredients for a crowd pleasing rock anthem.


Hope Party - A pumping pop beat with synths and syncopated rhythms that give the style a vaguely Caribbean sound.


Safri Dance - A percussion heavy, latin influenced dance style full of synth effects.


Satellite Beat - A jerky pop beat with a bit of a new school soul sound. The instrumentation and rhythm are very flexible and will work equally well for modern R&B, hip hop, pop and soul.


The new Premium Style releases also give us a chance to enjoy two brand new demonstration videos from Martin Harris - take a look below.

Piano Bossa - Many popular "Latin" music tracks of the late 1960’s were influenced by Brazilian Pop music. This Style brings together Bossa Nova and Jazz producing a light and catchy groove.


Swedish Dance - Capturing the world famous sounds of 70’s Swedish Pop.
