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 Lincoln Center.
