    In the past week, I decided to try listening to Ceu. I had heard of this young lady from my Amazon recommendations. When I looked at her reviews on Amazon , I saw that many people were aware of her because she had been played regularly at Starbucks. ( I don’t go to Starbucks, so there was no way I could have heard her.) I am not impressed by her singing and a lot of people were moved by her voice. Am I the only one who feels this way?

    Who are some Brazilian singers that leave you cold?Thumbs Down

    Funk does not leave me cold. It gives me a reaction, ANGER! LOLSame with CERTO NOJO! Jesus, what horrific crap.

    Current Brazilian Rock Pop leaves me “cold”. It’s very boy bandish in the way it feels manufactured. Just not very good.
    There were some good ones in the past like Detanautas and some Jota Quest. Now older Brazilian Rock is good stuff IMHO. Like Legão Urbana, Casia Eller (REALLY GOOD) and Titãs to name a few.

    Thank you for the responses, everyone. I like Cassia Eller as well. As far as funk, I just cannot believe someone would punish themselves by listening to that mess. Another legendary artist that I can’t get into is Cazuza. I have listened to some of his songs and it didn’t qualify as rock to me. ladykhalia2015-02-22 20:08:05

    cì©u can be frustrating because she turns out songs that are decidedly unremarkable, but then delivers tunes like “vì©u da noite” and “bobagem” that have hooked me into sampling all her new stuff.
    there are some great female voices that rise above the others – leny andrade, leila pinhero, cassia eller (not the rock stuff – the other stuff), liliana viera of the european-based group zuco 103, tania maria – then there are at least twice as many more who come from the same mold. same range, same pitch, same emotionless droning of the same songs, and i wonder how they got bankrolled. too many to name, and i can’t tell one from the other. that leaves me cold.
    much as i respect them and their talent, i guess siblings maria bethì¢nia and caetano veloso leave me cold. (*takes cover*) i can only take so much of his highs and her lows.

    As much as I respect your opinion, Norah, I must differ with you on Caetano Veloso. He is the man I love.

    Cazuza is everything that is wrong with Brazil! He could only be a legend here. As the son of a very wealthy traditional Brazilian family (military if I am not mistaken), he was a manufactured success! He was a spoiled brat kid who decided “I wanna be a rick star” and the machine moved to make that happen. His music goes from mediocre to terrible. Much like Brazil, itself!
    As Michel Telo and Lepo Lepo show us, one does not need talent to make hits in Brazil. Just repetition. To be fair, this is not only a Brazilian phenomenon, though.

    I am relieved that I am not the only one who feels this way about Cazuza. I have heard only one song by Michel Telo and that was awful. I hadn’t heard of Lepo Lepo until your comment.
