Jorge Drexler

Uruguayan singer-songwriter Jorge Drexler came to the world's attention with his 2005 Oscar for the song "Al Otro Lado del Rio" from the acclaimed movie The Motorcycle Diaries. Born in Montevideo, Drexler is the son of German Jews who immigrated to South America just before World War II. His music is a combination of Uruguayan traditional music (candombe, murga, milonga, tango), bossa nova, pop, and jazz. The result is an assortment of very personal compositions with original arrangements that reflect on love, identity, race, and religion.
