Saudade / Press

“Saudade brings Brazilian jams to Yanni’s culture@dailylobo.com On Saturday, I could find no better remedy to a hard week than a cold drink and the soft sounds of Saudade when the four-person band played a mix of classic and modern Brazilian music at Yanni’s Mediterranean Grill and Opa Bar on Central Avenue. The authenticity of the music was evident from the moment the band started playing — nobody could have guessed every band member except for Orlofsky was never trained in the genre. Saudade brings precision and vigor to a local scene that receives far less attention than it deserves. I recommend to anyone to keep an eye out for the band’s next show if you are looking for vivid tunes from abroad. The band also offers a connection to the Brazilian culture that has an ever-growing presence in Albuquerque. (edited) Click on Annie Swift link to read her entire fine article,”
