Alvorada at Doña

After the success of our last gig at Folklore, we’re delighted to have another live date coming, on Saturday 24th October, this time at the classy Doña in Stoke Newington – also known for its great mezcal cocktails! It’s great to be able to play another show when opportunities are so limited at the moment. Musicians and venues are struggling alike, so we hope to have a good turn out for this one.

Alvorada at Folklore

News of a gig this Sunday, 20th September – Alvorada will be playing a live show in an actual venue! We had been planning to do another Garden Special gig. As we’re all getting used to in the current climate though, things can change at very short notice.

Therefore we’re delighted that Folklore have agreed to host us for this show, our first indoor performance since the beginning of lockdown. Tickets will be strictly limited, socially distanced, and available in advance only. Book here:

We can’t wait to be back on stage!

Alvorada at London Latin Music Conference (LoLaMC)

Alvorada had the pleasure of filming a couple of videos for the London Latin Music Conference, in connection with the London Latin music festival, La Linea . It was great to get to return to Rich Mix for the session, even if just to play in the empty space rather than a live gig.

For anyone interested in attending the online conference, with discussion panels and performances, it airs on September 11th, and is free to sign up to.
