Hi! I'm Alfonso Calvo. I play double bass and I live in Santiago de Compostela. I started playing as a self-taught musician when I was sixteen. Some time later I studied with Quique Alvarado @ Estudio-Escola de Música (member of IASJ, International Association of Schools of Jazz). I also took private lessons with Mariano Martos, Kin García, Xacobe Martínez and Alfonso Morán. I finished my Bachelor degree in Jazz Performance (double bass) at A Coruña Conservatoire, my MMus at Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (Esmuc) and my Music Primary School Teaching degree at the University of Santiago de Compostela.
Nowadays I'm playing with Alfonso Calvo Septet, Marcos Teira trio&quinteto, Aló Django, Valentín Caamaño Quartet, Marcel Pascual Quartet, Zumaque and Leira trio
