Caê

Born in the city of Araraquara, São Paulo state, Caê began playing guitar as a child and several other instruments until he composed his first songs at the age of 13. He wandered around samba and rock sessions in his hometown and later started to study guitar at the Conservatory of Tatuí. In 2007 he moved to São Paulo city.

He accompanied several renowned Brazilian music artists, such as Elza Soares, Paulinho da Viola and Paulo Moura and had his arrangements recorded by great sambistas. In 2012 he released his first album “Estação Sé” which was received with praise by the specialized critics, appearing among the revelations of the year in the main Brazilian press vehicles. Later on, he created the sound track for documentaries, theater plays and TV shows.

In his second album, “A nave de Odé” (2016), Caê creates an imaginary geographic map exploring dialogues between languages and influences of Brazilian, African and Jamaican music, inspired by the mythological figure of the Odé orixá, the hunter and keeper of the woods and of humanity. Caê is completely comfortable choosing to combine and recombine rhythmic and melodic elements linked to very different Brazilian, Jamaican and African genres.
