Quarteto em Cy are a Brazilian vocal girl group from Ibirataia, Bahia. Formed in 1959, the group, which consisted of sisters Cybele, Cylene, Cynara, and Cyva Ribeiro de Sá Leite, started performing on local television and then relocated to Rio de Janeiro in the early 60s to advance their music career. After playing in small clubs and discotheques in the city, they were discovered by poet and lyricist Vinicius de Moraes, who helped them come up with their name. After signing with the label Elenco, Quarteto em Cy made their debut in 1964 with a self-titled LP that featured the hit single “Tudo o Que Você Podia,” a track written by Clube da Esquina's Marcio and Lô Borges that solidified the group’s status as one of the most promising artists in the bossa nova scene. In the following years, the group collaborated extensively with some of the biggest names in Brazilian popular music of the 60s and 70s, including Dorival Caymmi, Vinicius de Moraes, Baden Powell, and MPB4, and cultivated a large international fan base outside of their native Brazil. Following a brief hiatus between 1970 and 1972 and some minor lineup changes, Quarteto em Cy continued to record and perform well into the 21st century, even after Cybele’s death in 2014.
