The 24-year-old Brazilian singer CéU
is just like a diamond that keeps on growing. Little by little she reveals herself and grows into a magnificent jewel. Maria do Ceú, whose name means something like paradise in Portuguese, most certainly ís a talent. Her waywardness and determination procured her a spot in the Brazilian music business at a very young age. Last year CéU presented her eponymous debut album, an eclectic cocktail of styles including electro jazz, afro beat, and even fado. Sometimes she sounds light-footed like a summer breeze, sometimes more detached and modern: trip-hop with a Brazilian feel.
