Seu Jorge is of the most inspiring musicians I know of. Living in a favela, north of Rio de Janeiro, Seu was homeless for 3 years. Nevertheless, his talents and ambitions have not worn down quite yet. This album, “Cru”, (2004) is a beautiful piece of art that deserves nothing less than your complete attention.
On a separate note, Seu Jorge also has music in the movie “City of God”, which is my favorite movie and should be watched by anyone reading this.
