Alma 1a7pm doors, 8pm show

Beautiful melodies, captivating beats, stunning improvisations – Alma’s irresistible music will move listeners to join them in joyful song and dance. Drawing inspiration from Fado and folk tunes of the Iberian Peninsula, then navigating the seas to Cape Verde, Principe, Sao Tome, Angola and Brazil, Alma will take you on a soulful journey from traditional to modern and original Portuguese song.

This spectacular five-piece ensemble features Sydney’s renowned and stunning songstress and violinist Mandie Vieira alongside fellow Portuguese-Australian Loretta Palmeiro (saxophone/clarinet/flute) and a stellar rhythm section in guitarist Richard Ashby, bassist Brendan Clarke and drummer Mike Quigley. Bringing you the sweetest sounds of Portugal and beyond, come along and Alma will appease your saudades.
