One of the biggest stars of Brazilian music, Jorge Ben Jor made global ripples in 1963 at the tender age of 21 with the release of his first album and the smash hit Mas Que Nada. In the years since, his exhilarating music has been sampled and covered by hundreds of artists around the world. His smooth and distinctive mix of samba with bossa nova, funk, pop and rock has placed him at the forefront of the ‘jovem guarda’ (young guard) and ‘tropicalia’ (tropical-psychedelia) movements and earned him the title ‘the King of Samba Rock’. Still relevant, still lively, he performed with his supremely talented band at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival 2019 to thousands of adoring fans.
