There’s one thing for sure so far into the year: the singer Céu will be in most top album lists for 2016 with her work Tropix. Her riveting compositions are enraptured with electronic twists, a novel sound to São Paulo ears. This deep dive into modern outer space atmosphere is the byproduct of a collaboration with the French keyboard artist Hervé Salters, from the band General Elektriks. He produced Tropix alongside the drummer Pupillo (from Nação Zumbi). SIM São Paulo targets the new music market, making Céu and General Elektriks a natural choice for the evening program. The event will take place on December 8th, when both artists join efforts on stage at Cine Joia.
The evening starts the Swiss singer and composer Sophie Hunger, who has previously performed at Glastonbury and the Montreux Jazz Festival. Her song Le Vent Nous Portera because a hit in Brazil through the Globo soap Velho Chico.
General Elektriks will follow. The band is a project by the keyboard player, composer, singer and producer Hervé Salters. He will perform his recently launched live album Punk Funk City. It includes the tracks “Raid The Radio”, “Whisper to me”, and many more.
Céu will wrap up the evening with the acclaimed universe of Tropix, including songs such as “Varanda Suspensa”, “Chico Buarque Song”, “Minhas Bics” and “Perfume do Invisível”. There is no doubt that Hervé Salters and Céu will get together on stage at Cine Joia.
The joint Céu-General Elektriks tour, which includes São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, is an initiative by the production company Urban Jungle, support by the French Music Bureau Export.
SIM SÃO PAULO is an initiative by Inker Agência Cultural, and this year partners include Centro Cultural São Paulo, Auditório Ibirapuera, the São Paulo Municipal Authority and the Municipal Secretary for Culture. The event is sponsored by SKOL, BNDES and FUNARTE.
