Maria Gadú

One of Brazil’s recent MPB stars makes a rare trip to London for a headline show. Caetano Veloso is a huge fan, and it’s easy to understand why. With energy, intimacy and a knack for a sweet melody, Gadú rose to fame quickly in Brazil when her debut album arrived in 2009. Her career has rarely stalled since then, with each album quickly entering the Brazilian Top Ten, and Gadú becoming a spokesperson for a new generation of Brazilians.

“Maria Gadù is a popular phenomenon for her own generation and someone with an authentic musical vocation. The first time I saw her I was dazzled and when she started singing it was spectacular.” Caetano Veloso
