”…Great gig, great band, everyone loved it!” Organisers of Teignmouth Jazz Festival
Orpheus – Brazilian Jazz Sextet
Orpheus is an exciting six-piece Latin / Brazilian jazz project brought together by a mutual love of Brazilian music and led by Swedish singer Annika Skoogh and Martin Jenkins. Their debut gig was at Teignmouth Jazz Festival in 2016 and it went down a storm, and so much so, they were asked back again last year and continue to play to sell out shows with their infectious music.
The group’s live set is a potent mix of uplifting sambas and stunning bossas with a unique organ sound and Annika adds another dimension to their performances by singing the songs in their native written language of Portuguese.
The band features Annika Skoogh (vocals), Martin Jenkins (organ), Steve Dow (guitar), Jade Gall (flute/sax), Gary Evans (drums) and Colin Seddon (percussion). The band members are all well respected musicians in their own right and together they produce an enthralling and captivating sound guaranteed to delight!
