Jorge Ben

Jorge Duilio Lima Menezes (born March 22, 1942),  using the stage name Jorge Ben Jor since the 1980s, though commonly known by his former stage name of Jorge Ben, is a Brazilian popular musician. His characteristic style fuses samba, funk, rock and bossa nova with lyrics that blend humor and satire with often esoteric subject matter.  Some of his hits include "Chove Chuva," "Mas Que Nada," "Ive Brussel," "Balança Pena," among others, and have been interpreted by artists such as Caetano Veloso, Sérgio Mendes, Miriam Makeba, and Marisa Monte.

Ben's broad-minded and original approach to samba led him through participation in some of Brazilian popular music's most important musical movements, such as bossa nova, Jovem Guarda, and Tropicália, the latter period defined by his albums Jorge Ben (1969) and Fôrça Bruta (1970).  He has been called "the father of samba-rock", by Billboard magazine.  According to American music critic Robert Christgau, Ben and his contemporary Gilberto Gil were "always ready to go further out on a beat than the other samba/bossa geniuses".

Jorge Ben - Mas que nada


Mas, que Nada!" (Brazilian Portuguese: [mas ki ˈnadɐ]) is a song written and originally performed in 1963 by Jorge Ben Jor on his debut album, which became Sérgio Mendes' signature song in his 1966 cover version.

It was voted by the Brazilian edition of Rolling Stone as the fifth greatest Brazilian song. It was inducted to the Latin Grammy Hall of Fame in 2013.
