About The ShowCity Winery Washington DC presents Céu live in concert on Friday, July 8 at 8:00 PM.
Céu released her self-titled album in 2007 and was one of the few Brazilian artists to be nominated for a Grammy in the World Music category. Her first album reached number one on Billboard's "Heatseeker" and "World Music" charts, and number 57 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the highest U.S. chart position ever achieved by a Brazilian artist since Astrud Gilberto with "Girl From Ipanema" in 1963.
Céu has been nominated eight times and has won three Latin Grammys with her albums Tropix (2017) and Apka! (2020).
APKA! (2020) reached #1 in both the US and Canadian iTunes’ world music charts. It was also the most played album, in more than 200 college and community radio stations in the United States and Canada, within the Latin Music and World Music categories in 2020 (NACC charts)
In 2021 Céu released an album of covers, Um Gosto de Sol. It’s the first album in which Céu is only a performer, giving voice to a dozen songs written by different authors including João Gilberto (Bim Bom), Francis Albert (Feelings), Sade (Paradise), Jimi Hendrix (May This Be Love), Beastie Boys (I Don’t Know), Fionna Apple (Criminal), and others. The album reached #1 on NACC World Music and Latin charts and successfully entered radio playlists around the world in Brazil, USA, Canada, France (Radio FIP selection) and Germany (Radio Cosmo WDR selection). It has been praised by leading media outlets worldwide.
In 2022, Céu will be embarking on a world tour in support of the album and will play stages across the UK, Europe, North America, Latin America and Brazil.
