    Jorge Ben whose real name is Jorge Duílio Lima Meneses is known for his special guitar and music style. In his first fase he was dedicated to Bossa Nova. His first and maybe biggest hit “Mas Que Nada” has gained new popularity in the version of Sérgio Mendes feat. Black Eyed Peas in 2006. When he adopted to play electric guitar in the 70’s he created the style called Sambarock. The records of this decade are marked as well by esoteric influences. In the 80’s when his sound tourned into more Pop he became famous in the US. By then he changed his name to Jorge Ben Jor. The reason for this seems to be not quite sure, but most probably the purpose was not to be confused with George Benson. His latest record Recuerdos de Asunción 443 comprises almost only unreleased material of the 70’s and 80’s. The songs only have been finished in 2007 after the forgotten tapes have been found in the studio of Som Livre residing in Rua do Assunção 443 in Rio de Janeiro.

    The best new recent covers are from Los Sebosos Postiços. The band is made up of members of Nação Zumbi and Mundo Livre S/A from Recife’s Manguebeat movement. They make re-interpretations mostly of the less popular songs and do this in an unique style between MPB, Indie and Dub. Get a live recording here.
