Seu Jorge in concert
In commemoration of David Bowie’s recent passing, Seu Jorge performs a special tribute to him while recreating the set to the film A Life Aquatic on stage alongside screens crafted as boat sails that will be displaying images from the film.
Jorge, one of Brazil’s most talented contemporary singers, rose to international fame in the Wes Anderson film, The Life Aquatic. In his acclaimed role as Pelé dos Santos, a singing sailor, Jorge performed several of David Bowie’s songs in the film. But in a twist, he did it in Portuguese, accompanying himself simply on acoustic guitar.
Jorge’s adaptations in Portuguese of David Bowie’s music underscore the breadth and depth of his compositions and have gone on to have a significant cultural impact.
