Giba Conceição is a percussionist in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. He began playing professionally in 1986 and in 1987 was the recipient of the prestigious Trofeu (Trophy) Caymmi as that year's musical revelation.
Giba is deeply involved in candomblé and the African rhythms of Bahia, and was music director for Grupo Ofá, organizing and playing on their recordings of candomblé-based music, released as "Odum Orín". He's worked with Paulinho da Viola, Paulo Moura, Gilberto Gil, Jimmy Cliff, and many, many others. Something less common in Bahia (more associated with Rio de Janeiro), Giba is also a consummate cuica player.
