Cicero Lee Cicero Lee

Cicero Lee is a restless researcher of his instrument, the electric bass, whose personal goal is to achieve a degree of expressiveness and dexterity that may indeed be noteworthy. It's a winding route of great dedication, which he cannot abdicate. He is also a double bassist, composer, teacher, photographer, and a strong presence in the portuguese music scene in genres ranging from Jazz to Pop-Rock, World Music and Traditional portuguese Music. His second album as a leader, called “Those Who Stay” was released in November 2015 with the support of RTP Antena 2, a national radio station, and it was classified as on of the top four Portuguese records of the year. His first album, “Ventos” (Sintoma Records, 2013) led him, between 2013 and 2014, to act in dozens of clubs and jazz festivals in Portugal and other European countries. He collaborates actively with historic musician Luis Represas since 2009, with whom he has had the opportunity to get to know Portugal in a deeper way. This musical relationship has created him the chance to collaborate with fundamental artists in the history of portuguese related music. Here, names such as Ricardo Ribeiro, João Gil, Martinho da Vila, Stewart Sukuma, Jorge Palma stand out joining others from other collaborations, such as Chico Cesar, Cristina Branco, Rao Kyao, Paulo de Carvalho, Elisa Rodrigues, Janita Salomé, and many more who have served to enrich Cícero as an artist musician
