Parallel to their live shows and preparations for the festival season the five musicians are also working in the studio on a new album. It will be a christmas record called "Cherubim" and appear on SONY Classical in autumn. Therefore, ALMA decided to search the archives for songs that allow an introverted but also festive instrumentation. Thus the end of the year will be the perfect moment for ALMA to sparkle with "Cherubim".
The five musicians will perform in very extraordinary venues of southern Germany on Thursday March 14th and Friday March 15th. Their first stop will be in Gilching where they play under the motto "Musik im Rathaus" in the city's most important official building which will be filled with a relaxed and unofficial atmosphere. One day later Julia, Matteo, Marlene, Evelyn und Marie-Theres will be part of the Zwölfte Weyarner Kleinkunsttage and give the "WeyHalla" which is usually used for rather sportive than musical reasons the special alpine touch! Enjoy.

We are very delighted to welcome OMIRI as a new member in the Laviola family! Although the cooperation is not brand new since Vasco Ribeiro Casais, who's behind OMIRI, was a member of the folkrock band Dazkarieh, which was the first band Laviola ever represented. That was many years ago and now our paths have come together again. OMIRI's artistic concept is as original as exciting since he merges traditional Portuguese dances and songs with modern electronics. The result is inspiring and fascinating at the same time since OMIRI does not only play several traditional instruments, he also works with huge screens on stage in order to bring the Portuguese spirit to the audience. We are very happy to have OMIRI with us. Are you ready to dance?
