A natural-born chameleon, she changes her appearance constantly, applying the same restless creative spirit to her physical appearance that she applies to her art. At the age of six she was immersed in a São Paulo conservatory studying classical music (as well as acting). At the tender age of seventeen, she was composing her own songs in her head, writing poetry like crazy and began to discover the alluring charms of São Paulo's burgeoning 'jam' scene.
One night, Cibelle ended up on stage with a tall, mysterious
Serbian-born producer known as Suba. They didn't know each other but after
just one performance together, knew they had something special. They arranged
to meet the next day. Suba played Cibelle the music he had been working
on for an album and a musical marriage was born. The resultant album,
'São Paulo Confessions', was released on Ziriguiboom (Crammed Discs'
Brazilian imprint) in 1999 and is one of most seminal and revered albums
Cibelle is now with an EP on the way to be released on the 25th of April around the world. The EP, named "About a Girl", contains 4 tracks from the new album and 4 videos, 3 of them made by Cibelle and one by Elsa Dahmani ( Tony Gatlif's daughter). All tracks on the EP to come have been produced in a collective way by Cibelle, Apollo9 and Mike Lindsay, 2 of them with a starting point in brazil being pre-produced in conjunction with Apollo9, and 2 others beginning in london, with Mike Lindsay ( from Tunng ), the tracks were taken back and forward between producer/co-producer/pre-producer playing with the notion of it, making an interesting collage of 3 kindred spirits affecting each other with they similar yet different sound universes, but above all, everything is done so that people can feel emotions, have different sensations, the voice is just one of the channels alongside the crispy electric leaves and the underground basses impossible to touch. The new album shall come out in september 2005, it is still in "pregnancy state".
