I’m a professional guitar player, who has worked with some of the most important artists of my generation, including Fagner, Baby Consuelo, Carlos Lyra, Marcos Valle, and many others. I love the flair of the Ipanema lifestyle, from the beat of the streets to the birds and waves that made bossa nova famous and adored worldwide.

I,ve been doing my experience a live for three years with more than 250 five stars reviews.
I love music and love to talk about Brazil and his music.

I gifted this to my husband for his birthday; he lived in Brasil for a while and to say the least this experience pulled at his heart strings. Cecelo is a wonderul person and knowledgeable and talented musician. We had a lot of fun and I learned a lot about Bossa Nova! Bom D+!

Cecelo made my Friday evening. This experience transported me from cold and snowy Chicago to Brazil...what a treat! He was funny, brilliant, and a beautiful musician. Our time was a seamless mix of storytelling, history, and music. At the end of the time he even made some classic American tunes into Bossa Nova, making it even more personal. Cecelo makes an effort to get to know each participant at the beginning of the event and then incorporates aspects of each person throughout the time...a skill that makes everyone feel heard and welcomed. What a gift. I would definitely recommend this experience!

It was a beautiful journey through the music, time and culture. Cecelo is a great musician that tells about music and plays the music with his heart, it was a pure pleasure to spent this time with him :)

I learned a lot about Bossa Nova. This is a lecture punctuated by snippets of Cecelo playing. Cecelo's personality is engaging and the lecture style fresh and lively. I like how he tailored the last 1/2 hour to audience input.
