Canadian bassist and composer, Rubim de Toledo, combines the influences of his Brazilian heritage and his dedication to the jazz tradition, to create an approach to music that is refreshing and uplifting. Boasting a diverse rhythmic palette inspired by world music, jazz, and contemporary music, a lure towards improvisation and a forward-looking traditionalism, Rubim nurtures a commanding sound and style as a bassist, soloist, and composer.

With his fourth release, “The Bridge,” Rubim distinguishes himself as a composer with a unique ability to explore jazz styles while maintaining a sound that is modern yet inviting. For the last ten years, Rubim has been working extensively as musical director with Calgary’s Decidedly Jazz Danceworks where he has acted as musical director and composer for ten major projects.

Rubim visits New Zealand for the first time, and will be performing with locals Kevin Field and Ron Samsom.
