Brazilian phenomenon CeU is returning this Spring to the U.S. for a run of dates in Las Cruces, Miami, New York City, Minneapolis, San Francisco and Los Angeles. CeU 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, which translates to “slow, easygoing, and leisurely."

Vagarosa won CeU 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 CeU came to be the first international artist featured in Starbucks' Hear Music Debut series. CeU was also handpicked for the Starbucks' Sweetheart 2010 compilation, which features her recording of Tim Maia's “Eu Amo Você," alongside artists including Jose Gonzalez, Spoon and The Avett Brothers.
