Tickets
1a Camden High Street  London NW1 7JE

Ceu captivated the world with her self-titled debut album in 2008. Céu earned both Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations, countless press accolades, and chart topping numbers and became the biggest selling Brazilian artist in the UK.

Céu’s fresh electropical sound is emblematic of her hometown Sao Paulo, the intensely urban, forward-looking megalopolis of the tropics, the epicentre of the independent music scene in Brazil and a buzzing hotbed of invention and musical breakthrough.

Support tonight comes from the rather wonderful singer and multi-instrumentalist Curumin (from the same scene as CSS and Telepathique) – who spices up his samba funk with hip hop, dub and psychedelic infusions + Lucas Santtana a Brazilian singer, composer and producer. In his last CD, Sem Nostalgia (YB Music, 2009), he recreates the brazilian guitar tradition, mixing up sounds from the 1950s, like João Gilberto and Dorival Caymmi, with mashups, samples and his own creations.

“Maybe it’s time for The Girl from Ipanema to step aside and make way for the Girl from São Paulo.” Fox News

“This Brazilian multi-instrumentalist effortlessly sways and swivels through the sort of cut-and-paste Tropicalia pop funk that’d make Beck drool.” Spin Magazine

A night of the best of new Brazilian music presented on tour by La Linea – The Latin Music Festival with support from Arts Council of England.

“Ceu could warm any room.” Q

“Wonderful.” Songlines

“The melodies are sleek and assured, drawing on everything from Kingston dub to psychedelic rock, Erykah Badu-style R & B and cool jazz, all draped in elegant bossa shades.” Sunday Times

“Céu is the future of Brazilian Popular Music” – Caetano Veloso, Jornal do Brasil
