Brazilian sensation Céu announces her North American summer tour in support of her new travel-inspired record, Caravana Sereia Bloom which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Brazilian Chart. After completing the European leg of her tour with stops in France, Germany and the UK where she performed on the legendary program Later…with Jools Holland, Céu returns to play the US and Canada on June 9th. Céu will be joined by fellow Brazilian musician and Six Degrees label mate Curumin, who is releasing his new album Arrocha on June 5th.

Watch the official video for  Retrovisorand see tour dates below:

Céu North American Tour

June 9 – Princeton, NJ – Pettoranello Gardens Amphitheater
June 10 – New York, NY – Highline Ballroom
June 12 – Washington, DC – 6th & I Historic Synagogue
June 14 – Chicago, IL – Double Door

On Caravana Sereia Bloom, the Brazilian singer was inspired by numerous road trips from her São Paulo home to Brazil’s Northeast. Céu envisioned the existential mythology of travel, the bohemian atmosphere, and on her new sonic adventure you can hear how much Céu is enjoying her journey. Producer Gui Amabis does a fantastic job of allowing stripped down guitars to convey a constant sense of momentum and Céu pushes musical boundaries by exploring a multitude of Latin American sounds. NY Daily News praises Céu as “One of Sao Paulo’s most innovative singers,” a sentiment echoed by All Music who calls Caravana Sereia Bloom an “expansive and ambitious recording,” CBS Street Date who boasts that “Céu shows strokes of genius once again on new album,” and The Guardian notes “her voice is distinctive and versatile as ever.”
