CéU - CéU - 2005


The CéU album was nominated, in 2007, at the Grammy Awards as "Best Contemporary World Music Album". And it is that Maria do Céu Whitaker Poças, Brazilian singer and composer, not only has a magnificent voice but also knows how to combine modern rhythms with traditional sambas to create a fresh and very personal sound.

CéU, which means sky, is inspired by the sounds of the urban jungle of São Paulo, by the rap of the streets and by the music with which he grew up at home (trained in music theory, he is a specialist in violão -typical Brazilian guitar- ). Influenced by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu, her music is a journey through the variety of Brazilian rhythms that have their roots in the original African culture, be it samba, soul, rhythm and blues, hip hop, afrobeat or electrojazz music.
