Orpheus – Brazilian Jazz Sextet
A truly unique and authentic Latin extravaganza ready to transport you straight to Brazil, with melodic lines and diverse rhythms playing a potent mix of uplifting sambas and stunning bossa novas.
Ecuadorian/Swedish singer Annika brings authenticity to the performances by singing the songs in their native written language of Portuguese.
A six piece band is based in Devon, and brought together by a mutual love of Brazilian music, Orpheus features some of the best musicians in the area: Annika Skoogh – vocals, Martin Jenkins – Hammond organ, Steve Dow – guitar, Jade Gall – flute/sax, Gary Evans – drums and Colin Seddon – percussion.
