Seu Jorge

Seu Jorge (née Jorge Mário da Silva) made his first mark as a professional musician in 1998—as a member of band Farofa Carioca. In 2001 he released his first solo album, Samba Esporte Fino. He won the APCA Prize (Sao Paulo Art Critics Association) for best singer of the year two years running (2003 and 2004). In September 2004 he released CRU in France (through the Naïve label) and in England, winning rave reviews from French and English critics including Rolling Stone, Elle France, and Vogue France. He was hailed as a major new voice of Brazilian music and was invited by BBC to sing alongside the Black Eyed Peas and the Foo Fighters in Later…with Jools Holland. He also enjoys an active acting career, having played the role of Knockout Ned in the acclaimed film City of God (2002) and the role of Pelé dos Santos in Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, for which he provided much of the soundtrack in the form of Portuguese-language cover versions of David Bowie classics.
