Seu Jorge & The Athens State Orchestra

Let’s time-travel through our screens way back to the distant past—2018, to be precise—to hop on stage at the SNFestival’s Great Lawn stage. Brazilian samba, rock, soul, and funk singer-songwriter Seu Jorge and the Athens State Orchestra are performing The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, a special tribute to the legendary David Bowie.

This summer we have the chance to listen once again to some of Bowie's greatest hits in Portuguese, as performed in Wes Anderson's movie and on a set that recreates the film’s atmosphere. Bowie himself said about these songs: “Had Seu Jorge not recorded my songs in Portuguese, I would never have heard this new level of beauty which he has imbued them with."
