Seu Jorge (b. July 8, 1970) is a Brazilian musician, composer, and actor. Born Jorge Mrio da Silva, he was raised in a favela in the city of Belford Roxo in the Baixada Fluminense region of Rio de Janeiro state. His fans consider him a renewer of Brazilian samba-style pop. He credits his influences as the samba school Estao Primeira de Mangueira, composers Nelson Cavaquinho and Zeca Pagodinho, along with footballer Romrio and American soul singer Stevie Wonder.
Seu Jorge has gained exposure through his work as an actor and soundtrack composer. He appeared in the critically acclaimed film City of God, and then played Pel Dos Santos in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, for which he provided much of the soundtrack in the form of Portuguese language cover versions of David Bowie classics.
His new album 'Amrica Brasil' had a limited Brazilian release in 2007 under his label Cafun Gravadora.
