Gigs with Sambossa, and Alvorada in Nottingham

I’ve been doing some playing recently with Sambossa (covering for their regular horn player Marcelo Andrade), playing a great selection of Brazilian classics, featuring the excellent singer Carolina Lelis. Last Friday we played a really fun gig in Nottingham at Peggy’s Skylight – one of my favourite venues in the country.

Luckily I get to return there in just a couple of weeks with Alvorada, on Friday 29th April. Our previous gigs there have always been a pleasure, so I’m really looking forward to this next one.

Alvorada 5th birthday gig

Amazingly, it’s been five years since we formed Alvorada. Time has flown! In that time, we’ve played numerous great gigs, released an album, won awards, played on the radio, travelled, and made many wonderful friends along the way.

We’re celebrating with a special anniversary gig on Wednesday 15th September at The Pheasantry in Chelsea. Hope you can join us for what should be a great occasion!

Fuerza London documentary

Alvorada were featured in the recent documentary ‘Fuerza London’. Made by Latino Life, the film explores the experiences of the Latin community in London during the Covid pandemic, interspersed with performances from some of the leading bands on the capital’s Latin scene. It’s a really touching piece of work, and we were delighted to be a part of it.
