Cibelle in Prague

cibelle The Brazilian singer Cibelle arrived to the UK four years ago with an eponymously titled debut under her belt, and a set of songs that mixed Brazilian rhythms, delicate acoustic textures, electronica and idiosyncratic lyrics.

Singing at Sao Paulo clubs and parties since 1990s, Cibelle’s has been very much an international success rather than a Brazilian export. Indeed, only now is she making an impact in her home country. “I’m going back to play a couple of festivals, but as an international artist,” she says, laughing. “And I am. I’m a Dalston girl now.”

On the stage, she uses one mic for straight vocals and another for multiple sound-effects, “playing with whatever percussion I pick up on the way to the gig. Live shows never sound like the album.”
