Gonçalo Almeida

Rotterdam bass hero explores the outer limits of improvisation!

Originally from Portugal, bassist Gonçalo Almeida is one of the faces of Rotterdam’s bass scene giving a place to the double bass in improvised music. From soloist to bassist of improvised ensembles, he has played with everyone who matters: Ab Baars, Chris Speed, Jasper Stadhouders, Jorrit Dijkstra and Wilbert de Joode. Almeida also collaborates regularly with dancers, video artists and poets.
