Seu Jorge is a Brazilian musician and actor well-known for his work in films like City Of God and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, and for his style of samba revival. With his band, Almaz, Sue Jorge is showing the heavier side of Brazilian samba. Here is a video off of the band’s album, the self-titled Seu Jorge And Almaz that came out last year:
