Jorge & Mateus (sometimes written as Jorge e Mateus) is a musical duo and one of the most famous interpreters of música sertaneja. The duo is composed of Goiás, Brazil-based vocalists Jorge Alves Barcelos (born August 27, 1982) and Mateus Pedro Liduário de Oliveira (born July 15, 1986). Both are from the city of Itumbiara, in the Brazilian state of Goiás and are signed to Universal Music label.
Jorge studied law school and Matheus agronomy. Each of them started singing sertaneja songs individually, and their careers met in 2005. They started performing in bars and concert halls in Goiás regions. In 2007, they released their first album produced by a record company Universal Music called Jorge & Mateus - Ao Vivo em Goiânia, a live concert with accompanying DVD. The song "Pode Chorar" became greatly celebrated and awarded Gold Record by ABPD, after having sold more than 100,000 paid downloads in Brazil. It was followed by "De tanto te querer" that was used in the soundtrack of the soap opera A Favorita, da Rede Globo.
In 2009, the duo released a second album titled O mundo é tão pequeno, again a live album and accompanying DVD and in 2010 Ao vivo e sem cortes and Aí já era.
