Grammy/Latin Grammy-nominated Céu to tour US in spring 2011

This is the first time I’ve heard about Céu but I love her music style, even if it’s in Portuguese. Check out the video, links to her album download, and US tour dates below and tell me what you think. ~Ifelicious

(Press Release) – Brazilian phenomenon Céu is returning this Spring to the US for a run of dates in Las Cruces, Miami, New York City, Minneapolis, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Céu is truly radiant on stage and her live performances showcase a beautiful blend of Samba, Reggae, Electronica, Afrobeat and Jazz. She captivates her audiences with a laid-back yet mesmerizing disposition, not unlike the wonderfully light nature of her recordings reflected in the title of her album “Vagarosa” (download via iTunes and Amazon), which translates to “slow, easygoing, and leisurely.”

“Vagarosa” won Céu widespread critical acclaim, from Brazil to the States to the UK (deemed “the finest Brazilian album of the year” by The Guardian in 2009). The Grammy/Latin Grammy-nominated singer first captivated music fans across the globe with her self-titled debut album in 2007, for which Céu came to be the first international artist featured in Starbucks’ Hear Music™ Debut series. Céu was also handpicked for the Starbucks’ Sweetheart 2010 compilation which features her recording of Tim Maia’s “Eu Amo Você (I Love You),” alongside artists including Jose Gonzalez, Spoon and The Avett Brothers.
