Carioca, native of Rio de janeiro,Kleber Jorge comes from a family rich in a musical tradition that was passed by song - his culturally vibrant environment working in harmony with his bloodline - and it was not long before his innate musical talents were recognized and nurtured.

Given his first guitar at the age of eight ,Kleber was playing professionally by the time he was a teen.Upon completing a music theory education at Rio's music schooll, he performed regurlary in the city's top venues.

The Brazilian musician ventured beyond his own borders in the mid-1980's to tour Miami,and soon thereafter, he entertained at Pari's Palais de sport for a month run. Returning to his home town by 1988, after several years of performing and recording in South America, Kleber decided to move to Los Angeles to further develop his musical skills.

He studied guitar under Ted Greene and arranging under respected master Moacir Santos and ultimately formed his own group,touring California to the delight of many west coast audiences. still based in L.A.,Kleber has since recorded and performed with a variety of World-renowned musicians, including Sergio Mendes , Dory Caymmi , Rita Lee, Leny Andrade, Jonh Patitucci, Sadao Watanabe, Kevyn Lettau, Jane Monheit, Boney James, Kevin Toney, Lisa Ono, Chris Bennett, Andy Narell, among others.
