If you are in the Los Angeles area this weekend, we highly recommend that you check out this Summer’s closing ceremonies at the Hollywood Bowl.  Rightfully titled, “Blame it on Rio,” the show will feature the prestigious songstress and daughter of the legendary Bossa Novist Joao Gilberto, Bebel Gilberto.  A staple in contemporary Brazilian music today.  The show will also feature Seu Jorge, who is without a doubt one of Brazil’s hometown heros.  We are especially excited about this show because Seu Jorge plays a huge role in our upcoming documentary Beats of All-Nations:  Foco em Brasil.  The City of God star (remember Knockout Ned?), has had an amazing career, releasing five albums and staring in several films.  After hearing his story there is nothing we can do short of celebrating Jorge’s success.  You have three opportunities to catch this show at the Hollywood Bowl, September 11, 12 and 13th.  New downloads are coming very soon for you, but for now enjoy this very powerful video from Seu Jorge’s Cru album, the song is “Tiva Razao.”
