So Seu Me

Over spring break I watched City of God in two sittings. I guess it was just too good to watch all the way through without taking a break. Well, anyway, in my off time I tried to figure out why the character “Knockout Ned” looked so familiar. Then it hit me. He was played by the Brazilian singer-songwriter, Seu Jorge, also featured in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Check him out:

Seu Jorge – Team Zissou




And for a sample of what I hear is really popular in Rio today, check out this baile funk track that I heard in the Vice Guide to Travel.

Bonde do Role – Marina Gasolina






Buy Jorge’s new album, Cru, here, and Bonde Do Role’s EP here.
