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 bands ‘Samba Chopps’ and “Grupo Resenha”, both from San Diego. Most recently, he founded “Gambiarra”, a Brazilian band that plays all rithymus of Brazil such as Samba, Pagode, Sertanejo and Axe. “We found the band in October 2018 and are well organized and doing great things”, said Cyro Abreu. His band on Instagram is Gambiarra.SD.
