People ask me: “Why Baile do Almeidinha?” There is no real explanation for this title, we just liked the sound of it. It all began when I had a little chat with my creative partners Marcos Portinari and Maria Juçá at the backstage of the Circo Voador (a famous live music venue in Rio de Janeiro).
We liked the name and started working. Since the first rehearsal the band sounded great! Today we can look back at almost three years of pleasure, dances, and special guests whom I would like to thank with all of my heart. I also want to thank our loyal and quite diversified audience; there are the samba de gafieira couples, others who dance alone,
and those who only come to enjoy the music.
