12 years ago, Seu Jorge recorded a series of Portugese covers of David Bowie songs for Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic. Only a few of them made it into the movie – and onto the film’s soundtrack – but a year later Jorge released an entire album’s worth of the songs, captivating even David Bowie himself – leading Bowie to remark, “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.” Now, after all this time, Seu Jorge has decided to take this music on the road, using the tour to pay a fitting tribute to the late musician.
This November, Jorge will tour the country with this tribute, including a stop at Portland’s Revolution Hall. Each show will be performed amidst set dressing designed to evoke that of The Belafonte, the boat on which the majority of The Life Aquatic takes place, complete with sails acting as screens for projected images throughout the show.
