Seu Jorge

Seu Jorge

No nation is currently hotter than Brazil when it comes to cinema and music. One of the hottest names in the new wave of Brazilian music, Seu Jorge brings inspired music, presented by DJ and Brazilophile Gilles Peterson, at The Anvil on Friday 17 November at 7.45pm.

Brazilian music is full of passion, of sentiment and of joy. It is the result of a long simmering mix of heritage from AmerIndian, Portuguese and African sources meeting global influences to create a magical, mystical music. Yet it is the constant search for new forms within Brazil’s diverse musical heritage that most captivates and influences musicians around the world.

Singer, composer and actor Seu Jorge (City of God and The Life Aquatic) has made a remarkable transition from resident of Rio’s violent favelas to world pop star and a major player in Brazil’s explosive new music scene.
