About Jorge Ben Jor
Jorge Ben Jor is a brazilian popular musician, born in Rio de Janeiro in 1942 (and known as Jorge Ben until 1988). By his early 20's in the 1960's he was famous for pop/bossa nova hits, and in the 70's his work deepened and he began adding funk and soul to his style. His characteristic style fuses samba, funk, and rock, with lyrics that blend humor and satire with often esoteric subject matter (frequently, football). Read more about Jorge Ben Jor on Last.fm.
