Seu Jorge, Brazil’s sensational samba, rock, soul, and funk artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Florida Theater!
Seu Jorge (Mário da Silva) was born in Belford Roxo (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) in 1970 and is a musician, singer, songwriter, and actor. He began his musical journey as part of the band Farofa Carioca. He wrote most of the songs on their 1998 debut album Moro no Brasil and 3 years later, he kicked off his solo career with the release of the pop album Samba Esporte Fino. While his popularity increased with subsequent album releases, it was his work as an actor and soundtrack composer that brought mainstream recognition and success. He made a name for himself with the role of Mané Galinha in the critically acclaimed 2002 Brazilian crime drama film City of God. He became even more popular with his next role of Pelé dos Santos (a safety expert and Brazilian guitarist who sings David Bowie songs in Portuguese) in Wes Anderson's 2004 comedy-drama film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Its soundtrack included Seu’s Portugese covers of Bowie’s songs and Bowie said 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.”
