“The 1980s are not only not over, they are, like all other periods, still only partially developed. In a global perspective anyway. By Jorge Ben (today: Jorge Ben Jor) it says yes, he had his greatest time in the 1960s and 1970s. Well, with a hit like "Mas Que Nada" (from his debut "Samba Esquema Novo" from 1963), you 'll probably always need a bit of a start to beat yourself. But the musician, who is one of the big names of the Música Popular Brasileira, has not stopped recording and releasing records after that. Like "Bem-Vinda Amizade"from 1981. Brazilian rhythmic customs meet synthesizers and drum computers, as they used to be used in funk and contexts. Long before you fell for such slippery labels as Brasilectro. And with Jorge Ben, that does not sound like a stylistic use of force, but it does get pretty awesome. Here and there, it is said that in "Luiz Wagner Guitarreiro", for example, there is something like a Brazilian answer to Prince, albeit with a distinctly different style of singing. And enough other encores like a seemingly erratic guitar in the background that make it clear that there can be no talk of copy or so. Please discover!” – HHV Mag
