About the Artists

Jorge Ben Jor

Jorge Ben Jor is a living legend, the father of samba rock and one of the most influential Brazilian artists of all time.

Since 1963 when he burst into the music scene with “Mas Que Nada,” he has continued to contribute hits to the common world songbook. His music goes beyond the boundaries of Samba, Bossa Nova, Tropicália, Música Popular Brasileira (MPB) to create something far more.

His songs celebrate everyday life in Brazil from the favelas to the football fields, but also delve into esoteric musings about alchemy and spirit. His music has been covered by artists worldwide including Ella Fitzgerald and Sergio Mendes (feat. Black Eyed Peas), plagiarised by Rod Stewart and quoted by Barack Obama.

Jorge Ben Jor is presented in association with Fibra Entertainment.

Liniker e os Caramelows

As one of Brazil’s fastest rising stars, the sounds of black soul and samba run through Liniker’s blood. Right now in Brazil, it’s impossible to escape her sound – vintage Brazilian, American soul, samba rock.

Fresh off the back of the band’s album world tour, Liniker e os Caramelows will cast a musical spell, which will have you moving to their high-gear Brazilian funk then swaying to lush ballads and reggae bridges and eventually exploding into a majestic African-based Candomblé rhythmic finish.

Formed in 2015 and led by charismatic trans vocalist Liniker who hails from the São Paulo city of Araraquara, the band’s latest album Goela Baixo has been nominated for a Latin Grammy.

Liniker e os Caramelows is presented by arrangement with Arts Projects Australia.
