Review: Cibelle

(Ziriguiboom / Six degrees Records)

Cibelle, even the name itself sounds beautiful and her album, which she not only wrote but also co-produced with Apollo 9, matches the name perfectly.  The Brazilian singer touches the audience universally with her light, airy lyrics and simple words which are sung in Brazilian and English.  The sound, which is mixed by Chris Harrison and Pete Norris, the men behind Morcheeba’s sound, is pure serenity with a jazzy Brazilian-tribal twist.  A soulfully classy album, Cibelle is a musical force of nature.
