Jorge is supporting his new album 'Salvavidas de Hielo' which was recently nominated for a Grammy as well.
NY Times' Jon Pareles wrote "Intelligence and romance shine through his gentle voice — carried by grooves that are even more persuasive."
Jorge actually began his professional career as an ear nose and throat doctor. He didn't decide to focus on music full-time until the age of 30 when he left his native Uruguay for Spain, where he still resides. His music career catapulted after winning an Oscar for the theme song to the film "Motorcycle Diaries."
Jorge's latest single is "Telefonia": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wn4neB3uV6c The song is an ode to the ways we communicate and our intentions in doing so.
Watch the "Movimiento" music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIGRyRf7nH4 The song is a commentary about the current immigration debate. It is about the history of human movement - how people have migrating throughout time to stay alive. The video is a stunning cinematic video that was filmed in Mexico's Sierra Tarahumara. The star is the award-winning 22 year old runner Lorena Ramirez. Lorena's roots are Rarámuri - an indigenous culture renowned for their long-distance running ability.
