A musical visionary from Uruguay, Jorge Drexler is one of Latin America’s most celebrated singer/songwriters. He made an indelible impression on countless viewers by delivering an impromptu a cappella rendition of his theme for The Motorcycle Diaries, “Al Otro Lado Del Rio,” while collecting his Oscar for Best Original Song. With his soft, lulling voice, expert guitar work, and quietly compelling stage presence, he laces traditional Uruguayan forms such as candombe, milonga and tango with insinuating traces of bossa nova, jazz and electronica.
