I’m a professional guitar player, who has worked with some of the most important artists of my generation, including Fagner, Baby Consuelo, Carlos Lyra, Marcos Valle, and many others. I love the flair of the Ipanema lifestyle, from the beat of the streets to the birds and waves that made bossa nova famous and adored worldwide.

I,ve been doing my experience a live for three years with more than 250 five stars reviews.
I love music and love to talk about Brazil and his music.

Just book him, especially if you like music -- I promise you won't regret it! Cecelo is super talented, entertaining, and generous; he adeptly wove in interesting tidbits of bossa nova history in between delightful rhythms and pretty tunes. All of my friends (over half of them being musicians) were swaying the whole time, and we all left with an upleveled appreciation of bossa nova. His mannerism coupled with his explanation of the philosophy behind bossa nova also made us question why we we let ourselves be stressed during the day and reminded us to enjoy the present moment. :) It's also worth noting that Cecelo went above and beyond to accommodate us. Our group needed special accommodations and ran into technical issues, but he was super generous in letting us reschedule (which he totally didn't have to do, but did).

Nice presentation and style! He is into music, Brazilian from the heart and personally interesting. Learned a lot during our personal show and had a private concert :)

The experience was amazing. Cecelo is super knowledgeable and has a great charisma for story telling. He was extremely friendly and definitely inspired us to get to know more about the history of Bossa Nova and Brazil.
