Why hire Kiki Sanchez?
Kiki performs solo or with a jazz trio or quartet, composing and playing pieces such as "Dreams", and recording a new CD with that title, which infuses Peruvian-folkloric rhythms with modern jazz melodies, featuring that piece and the hit "For Kimberly", which made the top 20 in the Latin charts. He was also featured at the Museum of Contemporary Art and at Arturo Sandoval's jazz club.

Born in Lima, Peru, Kiki Sanchez was raised in a musical atmosphere. To advance his musical career, he left his comfortable situation in Lima and moved to the United States. This led him to Miami, where he studied with jazz piano greats such as Jim Gasior, Mike Gerber, and Mike Orta; he polished his classical technique with Diana Molinari and Cassandra Hanna.
In his constant drive to remain occupied, he began doing recording sessions with local talents. He shares recording credits with Frankie Marcos, Arturo Sandoval, Israel Lopez (Cachao), and the band Oriente, led by Eddie Barzola.
Now making a name on his own, he performs solo or with a trio or quartet, composing and playing pieces such as "Dreams", and recording a new CD with that title, which infuses Peruvian-folkloric rhythms with modern jazz melodies, featuring that piece and the hit "For Kimberly", which made the top 20 in the Latin charts. He was also featured at the Museum of Contemporary Art and at Arturo Sandoval's jazz club.
Two recordings on which he has participated have been nominated for 2005 Latin Grammys:
"La Onda Latina", with Frankie Marcos and Clouds: Kiki has credits in producing, programming, and on keyboards/piano; nominated for Best Traditional Tropical Album.
"Blown Away", piano/keyboards on three songs, including "Havana When I think of You" (a big hit on WLVE, 93.9FM), with Frankie Marcos and Arturo Sandoval; nominated for Best Instrumental Album.
If music is the "universal language", then this gifted musician speaks to everyone. He can capture hearts through his mastery of various styles, such as jazz, classical, Andean, gospel, Brazilian, R&B, blues, pop, Afro-Peruvian and Afro-Cuban. He encourages all to explore; he will capture you through that "universal language" that we all need to speak and hear. Have a pleasant journey.
What to Expect
