"Israeli guitarist Ido Bukelman has been exploring ways to extract an ever-widening range of tones, challenging as well as delicate, from his instruments since the age of twelve.

Ido plays in a variety of highly creative musical projects, including solo works (guitar, banjo, percussion), Ground Birds (banjo-double bass duo), EFT (Electro Free Trio), and the Haunt Trio (composed free jazz).

He has developed a highly idiosyncratic style since releasing his first trio album, City Tail in 2009. At the time, he tended to reference saxophonist Ornette Coleman's harmolidics and guitarist Jimi Hendrix pyrotechnics.

He has toured, and performed at jazz festivals, in Europe, with his trio and other groups.

Ido has worked closely with many of Israel's top free jazz horn players, including internationally acclaimed Albert Beger and Harold Rubin, and New York-baesd Yoni Kretzmer, and is one of the most active artists on the Israeli scene today.

Outside Israel, Ido has also played with the celebrated Brazilian jazz percussionist Airto Moreira, veteran German percussionist Gunter "Baby" Sommer and German trumpeter Axel Druner, Norwegian saxophonist Frode Gjerstad, and with a Polish hard core free jazz quartet with saxophonist Mikołaj Trzaska.

Ido has played a large number of solo acoustic works since 2010. On his solo albums, as well as in his solo live performances, he focuses on acoustic guitar, adding banjo bow, bells and some percussion, all played simultaneously.

In addition to his acoustic works, Ido is also currently active in the unique, experimental EFT (Electro Free Trio) band - a bold attempt to fuse free improvisation and real time electronics, delving into free jazz, rock and noise.

Ido is one of the founders of avant garde record label OutNow Recordings.

Ido is also an educator. He teaches improvisation, coaches and mentors groups that play free improvised music at Muzik College in Tel Aviv."-Ido Bukelman website
