Celebrating 25 years of friendship, Seu Jorge and Rogê looked to Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil and Jorge Ben for inspiration.

Recorded and cut direct-to-disc over two days at Artone Studio in Holland, the new album sees Seu Jorge and Rogê on guitars and vocals, with percussion coming from Peu Meurray and Pretinho da Serrinha.

Watch Jorge and Rogê perform ‘Saravá’ during their session below:

A key figure in Brazil’s samba scene, Seu Jorge is perhaps best known for 2005’s The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions – a collection of David Bowie covers recorded in Portuguese for Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.

It follows Night Dreamer’s first release, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 Night Dreamer Direct-To-Disc Sessions.
