Known as one of the best Brazilian singer-songwriters, Chico César celebrates his comeback to his musical career after almost a decade in politics (secretary of culture in his home state Paraiba). From 1997 till 2005 he played around 30 concerts every year in Europe, at all big world music and jazz festivals.
20 years ago his huge hit “Mama África” put him on the music map of Brazil, and he became a huge pop star in Brazil. But the studied journalist is an intellectual poet and many of his albums were too sophisticated for the pop market. Still, because of his catchy songs and his strong lyrics he remains very popular. Chico César himself is a great singer and guitar player and his musicians are always first class.
