Tiê

Tiê (pronounced Tee-eh) started playing on the same Sao Paulo clubs as CSS and Bonde do Role but very differently from the "party-music" of her Brazilian peers, her music is the missing link between Elliott Smith, Cat Power and Bossa Nova, Tropicalia and MPB ("Brazilian Popular Music").
Born and raised in Sao Paulo, after winning several "battle of bands" festivals in "sampa", Tiê studied music and composition in New York before touring with Toquinho (a major name on MPB, Bossa Nova) around Brazil and the world.
