Nothing is pure. Rebel yourself.
Célia Mara makes music with a big smile.
Singing about interesting times. Creating new collectives.

The international press calls her „female Manu Chao“; she is considered being one of the most innovating artists in the brazilian diaspora.

Célia Mara defines herself as “bastardista”: mixed, overpassing race, gender and class, creating a genuine nu-brazil sound, a latinized version of World Music - always carrying a strong message for peace and social justice with her.

Célia Mara’s charismatic voice, her strong compositions, the eclectic, but typically Brazilian mixture and the edgy electro-arrangements pushed the artist among the headliners of „Global Bricolagistas:

Los de Abajo, DJ Dolores, Manu Chao and Mariam and Amadou, Zuco 103, Celia Mara, Ojos de Brujo and Zuba were just a few of the names that grabbed our attention in a year when the world said no to globalization and yes to global music culture mash up.“
