One of the premier exponents of Latin jazz, and winner of the Louis Applebaum Composer's Award, the Cuban-born maestro Hilario Duran grew up in Havana in a musical family surrounded on a daily basis by a variety of diverse musical influences.

Recognized as a Latin jazz piano virtuoso, Duran has made his home in Toronto for many years. He has contributed immensely to the Canadian musical landscape. His formal music training, combined with a deep understanding of traditional Cuban music, as well as a love for jazz, allowed him to play a key role in the integration of Afro-Cuban music and jazz. Duran is a multi-time Juno Award winner and nominee, an American Grammy nominee, and recipient of the 2007 Chico O’Farrill Lifetime Achievement Award from Latin Jazz USA for his outstanding contributions to Afro Cuban jazz and Latin jazz.

Hilario Duran teams up with Venezuelan-born Luis “El Pana” Tovar who has developed a reputation for his outstanding percussion skills; Rubim de Toledo, one of the most consistently inspired musicians on the Alberta jazz scene; and Canada’s own and exceptional performer Raul Gomez Tabera. As a very special guest, singer Marta Elena will bring an irresistible and eclectic blend of traditional and salsa tunes presented in a unique and intoxicating style.

This is a Cuban show to take you on a trip of Cuban music, Latin jazz compositions and some Christmas songs to celebrate the upcoming festive season.
