Céu will be touring the US again in 2012. As usual, The Dakota Jazz Club will be welcoming the beautiful Brazilian back in Minneapolis, and yes, we will be covering her show. Be sure to read our previous Céu articles.
The tour will be for her recently released album, Caravana Sereia Bloom, which just came out via Six Degrees Records.
