“The Model: Oshun and the Dream” from Now-Again on Vimeo.

The second episode of the two-part short film starring Brazilan singer and actor, Seu Jorge, has arrived.  Both episodes were directed by Kahlil Joseph and inspired by Seu Jorge and Almaz‘s recently released self-titled album.  The latest video edition follows Seu Jorge as he struggles with continuous dreams of a gorgeous woman, “The Model”.  The films have a dreamy, trancelike quality about them, with rich imagery and even richer melodies.

Seu Jorge and Almaz at Terminal 5 on Friday, 7/30

Almaz make their only New York City appearance on Friday, July 30 at Terminal 5 as a part of their Summer US tour promoting their latest project, Everybody Loves The Sunshine. While singer, Seu Jorge, is well known for throwing an amazing show, this new collaboration of musical masters revisiting songs famous within the Brazilian diaspora (Tim Maia, Jorge Ben) meshed with classic American (Roy Ayers, Michael Jackson) and European (Kraftwerk, Cane and Abel) soul songs, with a bit of psychedelic samba to top it off, promises to be a glorious foot stomping orgy. If you haven’t already, this is the time to get your tickets before they run out.

In the meanwhile, you can stream Everybody Loves The Sunshine in its entirety courtesy of KCRW.
