Singer/composer from Paraiba (northeast Brazil), Chico is one of the most expressive artists in Brazil. Creative and daring, Chico is an inovative poet/song writer and guitar player.
Simone plays with him since 1992,when Chico started to become well known in Brazil, playing everywhere in the country as a duo, later with a bigger band. With him Simone travelled the world, playing in big festivals, TV programs and world tours.
Chico inspired Simone to invent her own way to play , using different set ups, from traditional percussion to drumkits.
Simone recorded in some of Chico’s Cds and live performances that became the DVDs: “De uns tempos pra ca” – with Paraiba string Quintet – and “Estado de Poesia” .
Now she joins Chico’s band in concerts when she is back in Brazil.
