Wildly Original Brazilian Diva

The latest in a great tradition of Brazilian singer-songwriters, CéU’s unique sound combines Afro-beat, soul, and electro-jazz with a voice of unforgettable beauty.

Four albums into her young career, CéU has left fans and critics breathless with her sensuous and slinky take on Brazilian pop. Her roots are in samba, which “sticks to the soles of her feet.” But she covers many other musical territories too, from soul to afrobeat and electrojazz. With a rare maturity and finesse, she has taken a rich and eclectic musical culture and made it all her own.

Just when you think that Brazil must surely have exhausted its supply of irresistibly jazzy, sexy, soulful electro-pop singer-songwriters, someone like Céu comes along and makes you think that maybe that particular well is bottomless after all.
