For a special tour, Seu Jorge is taking on the persona of the character he played in the Wes Anderson film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. You may remember him, seated at the top of a lighthouse or on the bridge of a boat, red stocking cap on his head, acoustic guitar in hand, singing “Rebel Rebel” and “Life on Mars?” in Portuguese. The image was striking, just like the soft, sweet voice of this Brazilian artist. David Bowie even spoke of his admiration for that interpretation of his work, steeped in a “new beauty”. In 2005, Seu Jorge released The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions, a compilation of Bowie classics mostly from the albums Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust. Rewritten in Portuguese, lovingly played on an acoustic guitar, the original songs display a unique sweetness and warmth. A cunningly subtle tribute from one of the major craftsmen of the renewal of Brazilian samba-pop, highlighting the universality of the work of the “Thin White Duke”.
