Alceu Valença is a successful Brazilian singer/songwriter and the creator of a distinctive musical style that mixes his northeastern roots (São Bento do Una, in the state of Pernambuco) and contemporary MPB grooves.
He is also an energetic, even mesmerizing live performer. His songs have been recorded by several major artists, including Luiz Gonzaga (with whom he wrote "Plano Piloto"), Maria Bethânia, and Elba Ramalho. His life was depicted in Anamelia Maciel's book Alceu Valença em Frente e Verso.
Alceu recreates Northeastern traditional music, like baião, coco, toada, maracatu, frevo, caboclinhos, embolada and repentes. His music and his themes are intangible, universal and unlimited. However, his aesthetic basis is has always been genuine Brazilian Northeastern music.
Over 18's only.
