Ceu Artist Snapshot:

At the start of the 2000s, a handful of beguiling acts emerged to revive the Brazilian styles that enchanted listeners in the 1960s and '70s. Maria do C‚u Whitaker Po‡as is one of the more creative of the bunch, meshing the sultry sounds of samba, bossa nova, and choro with jazz, hip-hop, and R&B to form a hybrid that is body-conscious yet sophisticated. The Brazilian-raised singer learned some of her chops in her late teens on an extended stay in New York City; she returned home in 2005 to make her debut recording with producer Beto Villares (Zelia Duncan, Herbert Vianna). The album became a hit first in South America, then Europe, and finally the States.

Product Notes

It's no surprise that Starbucks is behind Brazilian chanteuse CéU's self-titled debut disc. (A co-release with the ever-tasteful Six Degrees Records.) The slinky, soulful sounds would be right at home amid mocha frapuccinos and lattes with extra foam. But CéU is more than a mere coffee-club cutie. Her sexy, assured vocals infuse every song with a come-hither vibe, from the playful "Rainha" to the simmering "10 Contados." The disc also showcases a slightly funky, urban sensibility; and electronic flourishes amplify the modern feel. "Vinheta Dorival" segues from standard guitar licks into gentle percussion rhythms. And a cover of Bob Marley's "Concrete Jungle" is elegant and effortless. Though originally released overseas in 2005, CéU's captivating collection still rings with truth and vibrancy. A truly caffeinated experience. --Joey Guerra
