Cayarí: Indigenous singer-songwriter becomes octaEra ambassador

Check out the artist's trajectory since her first musical work

Cayarí is the new ambassador of octaEra, joining her strength and representativeness to our fight for the protection of forests and native peoples. His connection to nature and his indigenous roots bring an essential perspective to power our movement. Together, we will voice the pressing issues that affect our planet and the communities that depend on it, paving the way for a sustainable and equitable future.

Cayarí was born and raised in Vitória da Conquista, Bahia, and began her musical journey at the age of nine, demonstrating her talent for singing and composing from an early age. Since then, she has dedicated her life to representing Brazilian roots through art.

Her professional start in music was in 2011, when she set up her first covers band. Three years later, in 2014, she dived headlong into the world of rap, performing original compositions in Portuguese, English and Patxohã (traditional language of the Pataxó people).

The year 2017 marked a turning point in her career, adopting the artistic name Cayarí, which means “Rio de Cajás”, she began to incorporate elements such as headdresses, necklaces, earrings, graphics and bracelets in her visual identity. These items, produced by indigenous artists of various ethnicities, are an integral part of their artistic expression to this day. With the rise of her career, Cayarí moved to São Paulo in 2018 and started performing in the local music scene. In 2019 and 2020, he collaborated with other prominent artists and brands in the capital, showing his versatility.

In 2022, she ventured into acting, demonstrating talent both in "A Turma da Floresta Viva", by Augusto Cury, and in the short film "I want to sing (Ahnã Tokêrê suniatá)". In the year 2023, Cayarí joined the octaEra family to support our cause in preserving the nature and culture of indigenous peoples.

“I try to sing about my feelings, life story. About the strengthening of my roots, the indigenous cause, the union of peoples and everything that can be transformed into art. I have a lot of respect and care when talking about the indigenous struggle. Always in my place of speech, my reports are made from my experiences in villages, with relatives of different ethnicities. Music is my genuine and pure form of expression”, he said in an interview with the Àwúre portal.
