Biography

Maria Creuza Silva Lima (born in Esplanada, Bahia, Brazil on 26 February 1944) is a singer. Included in the list of her successes are songs like “Festa no terreiro de Alaketu” (Antônio Carlos Pinto), “Mas que doidice” (Antônio Carlos and Jocafi), “Eu disse adeus” (Roberto Carlos), “Pois é” (Chico Buarque and Tom Jobim) and “Eu sei que vou te amar” (Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes).

When she was two years old, Maria Creuza moved with her family to El Salvador. As a teenager, she excelled as the singer of the group “Girls”, which earned her an invitation to perform on radio programs. She recorded songs in English after being hired by a local label

In 1966, Creuza performed the song “Se Não Houvesse Maria” (composed by Antônio Carlos Pinto) at the festival “O Brasil Canta” (“Brazil Sings”, from the now-defunct TV Excelsior). The following year, she sang “Festa no Terreiro de Alaketu” (also by Antônio Carlos) in the “III Festival de Música Popular Brasileira” (TV Record). That same year, she recorded the song and released a single that also included “Abolition” (Antônio Carlos). In 1969, the song “Mirante” (by Aldir Blanc and César Costa Filho) led to Creuza winning a first place award for Best Performer and third place in the “IV Festival Universitário Popular Song” in Rio de Janeiro. That year, Creuza performed “Catendê” (Antônio Carlos and Jocafi) in the “V Festival of Brazilian Popular Music” (TV Record).
