Jorge Ben

By Robert Leaver

 

After completing a stint in the army Jorge Ben burst onto Brazil’s dynamic music scene at the age of 21 with his first recording, Samba Esquema Novo (1963 Phillips). The single, “Mas Que Nada,” was written in response to a friend’s constant complaints and is variously translated as “Oh, Come On” or “No Way, Man.” An instant hit, it has since been covered by hundreds of artists around the world placing it among the most successful songs ever recorded in the Portuguese language.
