Carlos Jose Tadeu da Cruz ("Carlinhos Cruz") singer and song-writer, 29, started playing music aged 10 taking up the sounds and rhythms of the bustling city of São Paulo in Brazil where he comes from. Influenced by the diversity and textures of contemporary Brazilian music his music is a fusion of traditional Brazilian folk and haunting melodies that speak of the vivacity and complexity of contemporary living.
Since moving to Ireland almost three years ago Carlinhos has enjoyed exploring contemporary Irish music as well as folk and sean-nós. For two years, Carlinhos has had bi-monthly residency in The International Bar on Sunday evenings where he often features upcoming Irish musicians.
As well as charming Irish audiences Carlinhos has enjoyed gigging in London and Paris and plans to play in Lisbon and Berlin this year. Carlinhos' debut album "Do Outro Lado" ("On The Other Side") IN 2014.
