“An unparalleled pianist, composer and arranger of the first order.” – Chucho Valdés

JUNO Award-winner Hilario Duran is well-recognized for his piano playing and composing skills. The Cuban-born musician grew up in Havana in a musical family surrounded by various musical influences. Classically trained, Duran's art form describes all musical elements, and the originality and quality of his music have been influenced by the Cuban pianists, composers, and directors of the Golden Age of Cuban music. After making his mark in Cuba, Duran continued to evolve his skills as a pianist, producer, composer, arranger, and musical director of remarkable virtuosity. Since arriving in Canada, Duran has made a name for himself. He is a multi-Canadian JUNO Award-winner, including “Best Jazz Album: Group” in 2024, a GRAMMY nominee (2006 & 2024), a multi-Canadian National Jazz Award winner & nominee, and the proud recipient of the 2007 Chico O'Farrill Lifetime Achievement Award from Latin Jazz U.S.A. for his outstanding contributions to Afro-Cuban Jazz and Latin Jazz. In addition, he has also been recognized as the winner in the Latin Jazz category of the Latin Awards Canada 2020. He last played TD JazzFest in 2022 and now returns in another unforgettable performance at Hermann’s Jazz Club! Roberto Occhipinti bass, Mark Kelso drums
