Alma Mater reawakens the voices of worlds gone by, bringing to life the traditions of Portuguese fado.
The music is dramatic and emotional, fierce yet surprisingly delicate. With an old-world sensibility and a passion for the music of times gone by, the group breathes new life into the timeless and hauntingly beautiful fado melodies.
Since forming, the group has moved from Melbourne’s cosiest hideaways to top music venues to music festivals around Australia. Alma Mater launched their debut album, ‘fado ao largo’ (meaning ‘fado from offshore’), to a sold-out crowd at the Melbourne Recital Centre Salon in May 2015, and look forward to a follow-up release in 2017.
Alma Mater will take you back in time, to a world where delicate beauty and unrefined passion walk hand-in-hand down the snaking corridors of an antique city.
