Can I even label Céu as Brazilian indie music anymore? Sounds like a disservice to her and to music. And I don’t mean that indie music is a pejorative term, but it’s hard for me to find a place in New York that doesn’t have Céu in their playlist.
Also, her music has so many influences, which include samba, valsa, choro, soul, rhythm and blues, hip hop, afrobeat and electrojazz music, that trying to label it into one genre seems wrong.
I think this profile on the New York Times in September is a good example that Céu is here to stay and what a great feeling that is.
