"Famliar to many in the states from his roles in the films ?City of God? and ?The Life Aquatic,? Seu Jorge is known to his fellow Brazilians as one of the most gifted songwriters and astounding performers of his generation. He has been embraced by no less than Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Jorge Ben as a deserving heir to their mantle. After making his debut with the pop-samba group Farofa Carioca in the mid 90?s, the ultra-charismatic Jorge set out on his own as a solo artist, bringing his unique take on bossa and stripped-down rock to an international audience through the solo albums ?Samba Esporte Fino? and ?Cru,? the latter of which was regarded as the album the year in Brazil." ...from MFA website.
