Seu Jorge, star of The Escapist, returns to the Roundhouse (after his sold out debut in 2006)  with his expanded band playing music from his brand new album America Brasil.  Jorge’s repertoire ranges from his intense urban sambas to bouncing, big band,  Brazilian funk.  

Seu Jorge was the subject of a recent ITV South Bank Show which told his extraordinary story from street kid in Rio to starring role in the film City of God and his reinterpretation of David Bowie’s repertoire on screen and on record in the Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. 

Jorge’s set is preceded by a dj set from Radio One’s Gilles Peterson.
