Born to a deep musical legacy- his grandfather, the legendary Afro-Cuban composer/arranger, Chico O'Farrill, his father, the GRAMMY award-winning pianist/composer/activist Arturo O'Farrill, and his mother, pianist and educator Alison Deane- O'Farrill has been surrounded by music since he was very young. He began studying piano at age 6, and trumpet at age 8, while starting to compose around the same time. Since then, O'Farrill has made numerous artistic accomplishments.
