Seu Jorge presents: The Life Aquatic – A Tribute to David Bowie
The Orpheum Theatre
Time 8:00 pm
North American audiences may know Brazilian singer/songwriter/guitarist Seu Jorge best for his film roles. He appeared in City of God, a film that put an international spotlight on favela life, poverty, and violence, and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, the Wes Anderson film that featured Jorge as a guitar-playing member of a sea expedition crew. He appeared between narrative sequences, playing intimate, samba-tinged versions of David Bowie songs. Today, Seu Jorge is both an international film star and singing sensation. His warm, husky baritone is instantly recognizable but nonetheless flexible enough for samba, reggae, pop, electronic, jazz, and other influences. Concerts can turn into joyous sing-along celebrations, as was the case during his last Jazz Festival appearance. Join us as we proudly launch the 2017 Festival with Seu Jorge in a marvellous tribute to the late, great David Bowie.
