A triple Brazilian bill to die for
April will bring some of the most exciting new talent from Brazil to London’ biggest Latin music festival. A holy triumvirate of Céu, Curumin and Lucas Santana will be appearing at Koko on Thursday 19th April as part of La Linea 2012.
Most attention will no doubt be reserved for Céu, an artist who blew everyone away with her last couple of London shows, as well as her last album Vagarosa. For this trip, she will be promoting her new album Caravana Sereia Bloom (released in the UK on 2nd April), an album in which she stretches out her sound to include more influences from the Northeast of Brazil, as well as occasional scurries into reggae, cumbia and other Latin American styles. It’s a broad spectrum from which she takes inspiration, resulting in a new album that is both quintessentially Céu yet pushing forward her music into new shapes.
Here’s Céu performing live during one of her first London shows:
She will be joined by Curumin – one of Brazil’s most in-demand drummers and a fine musician/producer in his own right – and Lucas Santtana, who made a couple of appearances in London last year of the back of his excellent Sem Nostalgia album, the first of his albums to get a UK release.
