The native from Fortaleza, in Brazil’s northeast region, came to San Diego in 2003 just to learn English as many Brazilians from medium classes. After a couple of months, he decided that he should stay in California to follow his musician dream. “I am a musician since 1990 and a lot of members of my family play some type of musical instrument,” said Cyro. He plays a couple of percussion instruments but the main one it’s the Tantam.
Cyro had the honor to participate, in the past, of the band ‘Samba Chopps’ that made a lot of success among the Brazilians of San Diego. Currently, the “cearense” is working hard with Grupo Resenha (Samba-Pagode Music Group) and with “ A Casa do Urso”, which is their production team. “We are well organized and doing great things”, said Cyro Abreu. Together with Paulo Batuta, founder of Brazilian Day San Diego, he and his friends of Grupo Resenha and A Casa do Urso produced and promoted the “Bar da Copa” in Pacific Beach, San Diego during the 2018 World Cup.
