Orpheus

Orpheus is an exciting new six-piece Latin / Brazilian jazz project brought together by a mutual love of Brazilian music and led by Swedish singer Annika Skoogh. The group’s sound is a potent mix of uplifting sambas, stunning bossas and 60’s soul jazz. Annika adds another dimension to their performances by singing the majority of the songs in their native written language of Portuguese. Her sextet of very accomplished musicians are; Steve Dow (guitar), Gary Evans (drums), Jade Gall (flute), Martin Jenkins (organ) and Colin Seddon (percussion). The band members are artists in their own right and are involved in various projects both locally and nationally. The musicianship is clear to see when these players come together and they produce an enthralling and captivating sound.
