Bruno de Almeida’s CINEMA IMAGINADO is now available on digital platforms and CD.
Featuring extraordinary musicians such as Graham Haynes on cornet and Ricardo Toscano on alto sax, the album is a hybrid of jazz, funk and spoken word.
Bruno de Almeida’s return to music paints a sonic and lyrical universe that is reminiscent of his independent films. Comedy and drama meld effortlessly into decaying urban landscapes full of compelling off-beat characters.
