Seu Jorge Background
Composer, singer and actor Seu Jorge was
born Jorge Mario da Silva in the slums of Rio de Janeiro. He took various jobs to keep his head above water. While fulfilling
his year of obligatory military service in Brazil, he also participated in the army band, playing the cornet. In 1991, tragedy
struck when his brother died at the hands of Rio police. At the 16-year-old's funeral, Jorge was introduced to Brazilian saxophonist
Paolo Maura's nephew, Gabriel. The Mauras helped connect Jorge to other passionate musical talents hoping to start up a band.
Jorge went on to spend the next three years learning how to play the guitar by himself. By 1993, A theatrical troupe, Tuerj,
put Jorge on the payroll as a musician and an actor. Jorge did nearly two dozen productions when he was with the troupe. Jorge
split from Tuerj to front the Brazilian pop group, Farofa Carioca. At the helm of the group, Jorge proved to be a natural
entertainer. His compelling stage persona instantly captured the attention of audiences and the media. In 1999, Jorge pursued
a solo career. He went straight to work on Samba Esporte Fino with producer Mario Caldato. In 2002, his acting career paralleled
his music career, taking off as well. Jorge took the role as Knockout Ned in City of God. The film earned an Academy Award
nomination. And two years later, Jorge was cast in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. In this particular film, Jorge played
an oceanography crew member, who possessed a taste for doing renditions of David Bowie tunes in Portuguese. Bowie himself
commented, "Had Seu Jorge not recorded my songs in Portuguese I would have never heard this new level of beauty which he has
imbued them with." This particular movie exposed moviegoers to Jorge's talents as a singer, which helped boost the success
of his 2004 album, Cru. A year later, The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions arrived, followed by America Brasil: O Disco in 2008.
