Siba was born in the cosmopolitan city of Recife, in a family which keeps close connection to its rural origin. He grew up between the two scenarios of the city and the countryside; two worlds being part of a whole. Since his first contact with Mata do Norte tradition he started a long learning and collaborating history, practicing the fundamentals of rhythmic poetry through the years to then become one of the greatest masters of the Maracatu and Cirandeiros' new generation. At the same time, as a member of the band Mestre Ambrósio, Siba developed a singular innovative music style, which has its distinct mark in the dialogue between traditional and contemporary, past and present, the street and the stage. After living in São Paulo for seven years, he went back to Pernambuco in 2002 to start Fuloresta; a group formed by tradicional musicians from the small 30 thousand habitant town of Nazaré da Mata, 65 km from Recife. Their debut album Fuloresta do Samba was recorded in a mobile unit near Nazaré and released in 2003, followed by presentations all over Brazil. The group also toured Europe 8 times from 2004 to 2011, developing their ability to adapt a song that lasts all night to the more concise shape of the stage. Siba says: "We never understand our past or traditions as a cage. On the contrary, our traditions offer us a vast vocabulary and we try our best to use it all day and night. It is impossible to reproduce the way we engage the whole community in poetry and dancing all night, but in those 60, 90 minutes the festivals offer us we have a great opportunity to show our musical impact". "Toda vez que eu dou um passo / O mundo sai do lugar" was Siba e a Fuloresta's second album: lyrics with intense poetry, cocos-de-roda and frevos mixed with dub music, guitars and electric pianos. A Wind Orchestra executing innovative arrangements with very special guest artists such as Céu, Beto Villares, Marcelo Pretto, Fernando Catatau, Isaar França and Zé Galdino. An album with a surprising cosmopolitan tone that goes beyond and questions the barriers between popular culture and popular music, spoken poetry, literature and the worn out contrast between tradition and modernity. This album was nominated to the Latin Grammy and was the winner of Best Brazilian Music Album.
