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.

With 5 albums released, Céu has been nominated eight times and has won three Latin Grammys with her albums Tropix (2017) and Apka! (2020). Céu's music has spread around the world. She has performed in 5 continents at some of the most prestigious festivals, such as Montreal Jazz Festival (CA), North Sea Jazz (NL), Coachella (USA), Roskilde (DK), Rock in Rio (BRA), and Lollapalooza (BRA). Having collaborated with Brazilian and international artists like Duran Duran, Herbie Hancock, Jorge Ben Jor, Gilberto Gil, Emicida, among others, Céu is one of the few Brazilian artists who have performed on BBC's Later...with Jools Holland. Her albums and shows have been regularly featured in the Best World Music lists by magazines and newspapers worldwide, such as The New York Times, Billboard, The Guardian, Mojo Magazine, Wired, Sunday Times, Les Inrockuptibles, Telerama, O Globo and Folha de S. Paulo.

Céu is considered one of the most influential Brazilian artists of her generation. 

Paul Beaubrun

A scion of Haitian musical royalty, Paul has spent his life living to the beat. Son of the Grammy nominated band Boukman Eksperyans, his earliest memories are of rhythm and sound. Moving to New York as a youth he was inspired by his heritage to begin crafting a sound all his own. Constantly aware of his roots, the struggle of an immigrant and the drive of New York life, Paul began to create a path where music, activism and history meet.

A unique and transfixing sound he calls 'Roots/Blues,' Paul weaves his impeccable guitar skills, rich, vocals, musical ingenuity and cultural history together; all while performing a smooth melange of both English, French and Creole (the native tongue of his Haitian roots).

Paul has played alongside some of the world's best artists including Ms. Lauryn Hill, Maxwell, Arcade Fire, Jackson Browne and Bob Weir. Worldwide performances include venues such as The Beacon Theater and Radio City Music Hall in NYC, Massey Hall in Toronto, The Ryman Theatre in Nashville, The House of Blues in Chicago, The Montreal Jazz Festival, Festival Internationale Nuits d'Afrique in Montreal, Le Trianon in Paris, The Paleo Festival in Switzerland, No Siesta Fiesta in Norway. These continued accomplishments make him one of the few artists coming out of Haiti to garner worldwide success.

Paul has joined forces with Artists for Peace and Justice, and become an integral part of their organization. He also continues to be an active member and perform at their many events in the USA and Canada. This allows Paul to do what he loves; play music while also furthering awareness of Haitian art, culture and promoting the incredible talent of Haiti's youth.

Paul's album titled 'Vilnerab,' released in 2015, soared directly to #1 on itunes in the World Music category, receiving rave reviews. In 2016, he was nominated for a Dora Award by the Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts for 'Outstanding Sound Design/Composition' in the production of Espwa/Espoir. Paul released "Ayibobo" in May of 2018 on Ropeadope Records, this albums sees Paul's evolution of sound into Rock/Roots/Blues music. In 2020 he released "Rasanbleman" on Ropeadope records, a live album and documentary including many different featuring artists from Haiti.

He is also part of "Let The Rhythm Lead: Haiti Song Summit Vol. 1," a collaborative album project including other songwriters Jackson Browne, Habib Koité, Jenny Lewis, Raúl Rodríguez, Jonathan Russell, and Jonathan Wilson, with members of the Haitian roots band Lakou Mizik released in 2020.

Paul is currently on a world tour with Arcade Fire as a member of the band and has appeared recently with the band on SNL, The Tonight Show and at festivals globally.
