Seu Jorge Presents The Life Aquatic: A Tribute to David Bowie


Oregon Zoo (map) Southwest
Wed., June 21, 7 p.m. 2017 All Ages


Imagine a romantic evening at the Oregon Zoo, its beautiful environs vibrating with music enthusiasts basking in the glow of heightened anticipation. Just as the sun descends into the horizon, a striking Brazilian man strolls onto a gently lit stage with an acoustic guitar. He plays a set of intrinsically familiar songs written by one of the greatest pop geniuses of our time, sung in perhaps the most sublimely constructed language in all of humanity. I bet you'd say that night would be damn near perfect! Seu Jorge's gorgeous Portuguese renditions of David Bowie's most beloved songs have only sweetened since the iconic superstar’s death in 2016, and the concoction has seemingly unlocked a whole new level of appreciation for the material’s magic. By isolating the soul inside of Bowie's classic work, Jorge reveals its universal power, even when stripped of monumental rock instrumentation and recognizable lyrics. CHRIS SUTTON
