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. Jorge's other efforts include: Seu Jorge and Almaz (2010); Musicas para Churrasco, Vol. 1 (2011); and Carolina: Deluxe Edition (2014).

Seu Jorge continues to tour the globe today and has even embarked on other ventures. Along with acclaimed fashion designer, Rachel Roy, Jorge came out with handbags, footwear, sportswear and jewelry. The partnership, which developed in 2012, was established to promote Brazil as part of a Macy's campaign.
