Alma Orquestra Brings Portuguese Sound
Five-Piece Ensembles Transports Audience to Lisbon
The evocative music of Alma Orquestra will transport Foundry616 to the steep, cobbled streets of Lisbon on Friday, April 13th.
The five-piece ensemble draws inspiration from Fado and folkloric songs of the Iberian Peninsula, as well as music from Portuguese-speaking nations of Cape Verde, Angola, and Brazil.
Rapidly gaining a reputation for their beautiful melodies and captivating grooves, Alma Orquestra have been selling-out shows across Sydney since their formation 12 months ago.
Featuring prominent Fado songstress and violinist Mandie Vieira alongside fellow Portuguese-Australian Loretta Palmeiro (saxophone/clarinet/flute), the group comprises a stellar rhythm section of world-music specialists Guy Strazz, Steve Elphick, and Mike Quigley.
