Seductive, earthy, beautifully executed music that has traveled from the heart of Brazil to Australia. A 'mistura fina' of OzBrazilian jazz, samba & soul-bossa that weaves the unmistakably lush voice of Anje West with the vibraphone of Kym Ambrose and their band of musical brothers.
Madcouch's music has taken them from hometown Brisbane to clubs in Rio de Janeiro and back again to some of Australia's biggest world, jazz & folk festivals. Anje and Kym recently returned to Australia after three months of performing, recording and study in Brazil, where TVFMC became a truly international group, with the addition of legendary drummer Marcio Bahia, bassist Mazinho Ventura, and guitarist Dino Rangel.
It was an all-out brilliant time for the group, and plans are already underway for the next tour.
"The View From Madeleine's Couch are one of the most exciting live acts I've ever seen across all genres of music. They look like they're effortlessly channeling immense energy and the sound that hits your ears is just filled to the brim with beauty. The music is intricate and exudes stunning creativity - but they still manage to just plain rock out" Greg Gottlieb, music journalist
