JORGE VEIGA 1937 - 1950


As we usually only see photos of Jorge Veiga where he appears as a middle-aged singer it's hard to realized how spunky he was when he was a younger man. Here's Jorge as a young hopeful who sang at PRC-8 in Rio de Janeiro in 1937. Revista 'A Carioca'.

4 February 1950 - so-called 'caracturista do samba' Jorge Veiga gives an in-depth interview about Carnaval songs to Correio da Manhã, arguably Rio de Janeiro's best daily newspaper.
