About Ceumar

Introduction     Here’s a crystal clear voiced brazilian singer, named “Ceumar” (     pronounced as “say-ooh-mar“) , whose name could have been     an artistic reference: heaven (Ceu) and the sea (Mar) – very lyrical and a     justifying metaphor for her musical approach.

Minas Gerais     When asked, Ceumar will reveal the truth of her name: it’s a combination of     her father’s and mother’s names. At home in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais,     the young Ceumar was exposed to the music of artists like Milton Nascimento,     Lo Borges, Clube da Esquina, Joyce and Boca Livre. When starting her own musical     adventure, Ceumar tended to choose the less obvious road, not very eager to     sing the songs “everybody” already sung before her. That was illustrated     by her more or less first show, which she called “30 Músicas que     você não ouve no radio” (30 Songs you don’t hear on the     radio) and contained songs by Egberto Gismonti, A Barca do Sol, Hermeto Pascoal     and others.
