Those expecting some smooth bossa nova will be surprised by Céu's eponymous debut -- sure, the smoothness is there, but it's augmented by some unexpected flourishes. Take the scratching on "Roda," for instance; it adds an exciting edge. Or the African influences that pervade "Rainha" -- a cultural acknowledgment that gives the track some oomph. Sure, there's plenty of tradition on the album as well, but Céu serves it up with a side dish of dub or electronica. The gurgling in the background of "Mais Um Lamento" or the beatbox that starts off the cover of Bob Marley's "Concrete Jungle." There's easygoing jazz on "Veu Da Noite" and more minimal sounds on "Bobagem" which leans on a subdued drum, Céu's vocals, and a guitar. Luckily, Brazilian music itself doesn't have to be confined to one geographical style.
