Alfama Sheet music is an arrangement written for String quartet. You can choose to buy score, parts or both score and parts together.

Alfama is a song by a Portuguese musical ensemble Madredeus. Their music combines traditional Portuguese music with influences of modern folk music. The lyrics are often melancholy, related to the sea or travelling or absence, continuing a tradition of songs dating back to Medieval times. The first album was recorded in their rehearsal space, a converted abbey in Lisbon. The recording was especially strenuous due to deafening interruptions every 5 minutes from Lisbon's tram service, which ran directly above. In honour of this unavoidable presence in their every performance, they named themselves after the surrounding neighborhood, Madre de Deus (Mother of God), shortened to the vernacular Madredeus.
