Their passion for passionate music brought the members of Alma Mater together. Alma Mater are Yuliya Mik (voice), Tiago Brissos (6-string guitar) and Julian Scheffer (7-string guitar).
Alma Mater reawaken the voices of worlds gone by, bringing to life the traditions of Portuguese fado and Brazilian modinha. The music is fiery, gripping, tense, yet surprisingly delicate. With its rare combination of instruments, diverse influences and musical cultures, the group creates a fresh yet faithful sound.
Alma Mater proudly 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.
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.
