Another World Music Festival event, this outing brings actor and musician SEU JORGE to the Logan Square Auditorium. Renowned for his film roles in City of God and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, JORGE is also an accomplished musician and purveyor of carefree, exuberant Brazilian pop. His latest effort, Cru, ably brings contemporary and traditional pop elements together to create charming music that is entirely his own. Response to his work as both actor and musician has been huge, and this particular outing could very well be one of the year?s best. African folk legend BOUBACAR 'KAR KAR' TRAORE will also perform. A West African superstar in the sixties, TRAORE has since bounded back from years of obscurity to achieve a level of world wide recognition and success that far surpasses that of his early career. Additionally, deejay and world music aficionado JEROME DERRADJI will spin throughout. Response to the show has been large, so we encourage interested parties to secure ticket early and often.
