Marcio Mendes presents a tribute to Seu Jorge
Friday 01 May 10.30pm
Seu Jorge is a venerable Brazilian honorific music icon, his dusky baritone and charismatic stage presence made him one of the most famous Brazilian singer at the actuality.
Seu Jorge has gained exposure through his work as an actor and soundtrack composer. He appeared in the critically acclaimed 2002 film City of God as Mané Galinha, directed by filmmaker Fernando Meireles, and then played 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 version of David Bowie classics. Bowie later went on to say about Seu’s cover album, The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions, that “had Seu Jorge not recorded my songs in Portuguese I would never have heard this new level of beauty which he has imbued them with.”
Marcio Mendes will create a enchanted ambiance with his band to bring to you the best of Seu Jorge.
