About the artist
This week we welcome Big Ben Jorge; having drawn members from bands including Electric Jalaba, Teotima, Cocos Lovers, Haraket and Flying Ibex, this band springs from a love of…well…Brazilian pop music.
With influences ranging from Samba to Northeastern and Baiao Styles, this diverse gathering of musicians found common ground in the toothsome grooves and nimble melodies of the Brazilian chart music of the 70’s and 80’s.
Particularly, of course, that of Brazilian pop legend Jorge Ben Jor, BBJ’s namesake. They pay heady homage to these artists, and the result is explosive and gripping to see live. Believe it – Big Ben Jorge are fun!
