Colombian born, NY based jazz pianist.
A native from Bogotá Colombia, Fidel relocated to New York City in 2007 to continue his
apprenticeship as a jazz pianist and composer, under the tutelage of renowned musicians
Bruce Barth, Mike Holober, and John Patitucci, graduating Suma Cum Laude from the City
College of New York’s jazz performance program in 2009.
Fidel’s stylistic versatility but distinct pianistic approach has put him in the radar of some of
New York’s best jazz, latin jazz, and world-music musicians, such as award-winning
drummer Bobby Sanabria, flutist Carlos Jimenez, and gospel singer Camille Newman, among
many others. Fidel’s recording credits include “Thoughts” by Jimenez, featuring Vince Cherico
on drums and Ruben Rodríguez on bass, and “Future Connection” by Cuban musicians Carlos
del Pino and Rafael Monteagudo. He has performed as bandleader and sideman in world-class
venues and festivals such as Iridium, Joe’s Pub, The Knitting Factory, and La Casita Festival at
