Paulo Almeida Group «Oferenda»

Oscar Latorre: trumpet

Joshua Schofield: alto sax

Lorenzo Vitolo: piano

Roberto Koch: bass

Paulo Almeida: drums/percussion

Paulo Almeida is digging even deeper into his acoustic cornucopia, respectfully and poetically marrying Afro-Brazilian music with European jazz. In his compositions, he has a unique way of weaving traditional songs into his ample treasure trove of sounds, combining a sensitive affinity for expressive, radiant timbres with his Afro-Cuban rhythmic roots. He sees his album as a personal offering («Oferenda» denotes a sacrificial offering) to the universe, in a gesture of the most profound gratitude. It is this humility that we sense in every note, like the lingering memory of a gentle smile.

On his Pre-Release Tour, drummer and percussionist Paulo Almeida is also playing at Museum Tinguely, where he'll tickle our curiosity about his wonderful new «Oferenda» project.
