The Los Angeles Times say's of her recent performance, "Céu enchanted - She promised she'd be back later this year -Make it a date."

The Latin Grammy nominee is featured in Newsweek's (International Edition) "The Girls From Brazil" article as part of "A crop of silky new vocalists "breaking rules while remaining true to the country's musical traditions." Newsweek says, "The 26-year-old São Paulo singer and composer CéU "segues easily on her eponymous debut CD from pop to reggae to dub in velvet, jazz-accented vocals. But Brazilian rhythms are still the foundation, especially on soulful cuts like "Samba na Sola" and the stirring "Ave Cruz."

The El Rey Theatre is located at 5515 Wilshire Blvd. between Fairfax and La Brea.

"Don't miss your chance to see this living legend. Devendra Banhart's idol - Caetano Veloso (the 65-year-old Brazilian music dynamo famous for fusing together more traditional South American sounds with a newer Bossa Nova spin) is going on a tour of North America. A true heavyweight, Caetano Veloso is a pop musician/poet/filmmaker/political activist whose stature in the pantheon of international pop musicians is on a par with that of Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, and Lennon/McCartney."

"One of the greatest songwriters of the [20th] century" - The New York Times

Grammy-winner and world music superstar Veloso's comes back to Los Angeles! A founder of Brazil's genre-crossing Tropicália movement in the '60s, he continues to blend new styles in the 21st century as heard on his rock-inflected new CD, Cê.
An unforgettable night, a show not to be missed...

"...Veloso's slinky melodies incorporate everything from jangly African rhythms to fuzz-tonedpsychedelia to gently undulating samba." NEWSDAY
