Willie Ziavino & C.O.T. Band

Willie Ziavino, Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, began writing songs since he was 14 years old, based on personal experiences and stories ripped from the street.

In 1991 he moved to Havana, Cuba, this experience gave birth to his romance with Cuban rhythms and reinforced his love for Trova.

In 1999 he was invited to participate in a songwriting nationwide competition organized by a radio station in Quito, Ecuador taking first place with his song "Confesiones".

In 2000 he recorded his first album "WILLIE ZIAVINO" with 12 songs of his own authorship, few months later he moved to Atlanta, Georgia.

Upon his arrival he started to work in his engineering career but never stopping to compose and play his guitar.

In 2009 released his second album "MARU" with a compilation of songs from the first CD and new songs written in Atlanta.

In 2010 formed the C.O.T. Band along with Juan Bonini (Panam) resulting in the fusion of trova, jazz, caribbean / brazilian rhythms and musical influences from each band member, this world music style blends perfectly with the melting pot that is Atlanta.

In that same year he began recording his album "CAMINO EMPEDRADO". The album was released in April 2011.

The C.O.T. Band quickly became very well known in Atlanta's latin music scenary performing weekly for the last 4 years in the best latin venues in the city.

They have also performed for Coca Cola, High Museum of Art, Georgia State, National Society of Hispanic MBAs, Hispanic National Bar Association among others. C.O.T. Band has also been invited to several Southwest music festivals.
