Drawing inspiration from Fado and folk tunes of the Iberian Peninsula and navigating the seas to Cape Verde and Brazil, Alma Orquestra will take you on a soulful journey from traditional to modern and original Portuguese song. Beautiful melodies, captivating rhythms, stunning improvisations - Alma’s irresistible music moves listeners to join them in joyful song and dance every time.
Alma Orquestra wowed viewers when they starred in SBS’s Destination Flavour Eurovision with Adam Liaw earlier this year. This spectacular five-piece ensemble features Sydney’s stunning songstress/violinist Mandie Vieira, alongside fellow Portuguese-Australian saxophonist extraordinaire Loretta Palmeiro and a stellar rhythm section in guitarist Jeremy Sawkins, bassist Hannah James and drummer Mike Quigley. Bringing you the sweetest sounds of Portugal and more, Alma will take you on an unforgettable journey and appease your “saudades”.
