THE MUSIC OF DJAVAN & SEU JORGE presented by Marcio Mendes & Thiago dos Santos

Friday 27 May 7.00pm

Djavan is one of the most important and creative artists of the MPB – Brazilian Popular Music
singer/songwriter Djavan might be called the Paul Simon of Brazil. Not only does he write substantial, endearing melodies, but his lyrics are poetic and clever. Furthermore, like Simon, his music crosses cultural lines and includes Samba, Forró, Funk, Pop and Rock.

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 is a talented Brazilian musician (sax, percussion, guitar, voice) and performer based in Perth. His unique charisma, personality and sense of humour – which never seems to get lost in translation – have brought crowds to find their own ginga, dancing and shaking their bodies to Marcio’s beats in Europe, Brazil and Australia. Marcio Mendes strong bonds with the community have opened doors for him to perform in larger scale festivals alongside musicians such as Jorge Ben, Tania Maria, Rachel Claudio, Katie Noonan and other very accomplished fellow musicians in Perth.

Thiago dos Santos was born in São Paulo/Brazil and has been part of countless bands since he was 15yrs old, when he starts to play (cavaquinho) and guitar.
He arrived in Australia in 2005. Thiago was invited by Marcio Mendes and Tom Foss to be part of Sambalicious Band and since then he participated in several Brazilian parties and festivals in Perth and around Australia.
