Music : World Heartbeat : Australia Soul : Brazil

Seductive, earthy, beautifully executed music that has traveled from the heart of Brazil to Australia. A 'mistura fina' of OzBrazilian jazz, samba & bossa nova that weaves the unmistakably lush voice of Anje West with the vibraphone of Kym Ambrose, making music that's taken them from hometown Brisbane to concert venues in Brazil.


The band is now in its 20th year of performing, making them true pioneers of Brazilian music in Australia. Their passion for the music remains undiminished, and their sound as unique as ever.

Over the summer of 2013, on their third adventure to Brazil, founding members Anje and Kym embarked on an 11 date concert tour which took them across three states and four cities, becoming a truly international group with addition of legendary Brazilian jazz rhythym section; drummer Marcio Bahia (Hermeto Pascoal/Hamilton de Holanda) and bassist 780-732-8115(Marcos Valle), along with guitarists Dino Rangel (Rio) and Beto Lopes (MIlton Nascimento, Belo Horizonte). 


"The View From Madeleine's Couch is one of the most exciting live acts I've 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". Greg Gottlieb.
