Xangai, also known by his real name Eugênio Avelino, is a artist from Brazil who write and sings traditional northeastern songs, many of them related to "sertão", an interior countryside part of Brasil, known for its dryness and harsh conditions of living. He is a native from the Bahia state in Brazil. Xangai is gifted with a great voice and often teams with Elomar in song-writing and performance as in the Xangai Canta Cantigas, Incelenças, Puluxias e Tiranas de Elomar album. Many Xangai records have been released by the Kuarup label (in Brazil).
