About Hilario Durán
A recipient of the Louis Applebaum Composers Award and the Chico O’Farrill Lifetime Achievement Award from Latin Jazz USA, Juno-award winning and Grammy-nominated pianist Hilario Durán has long been considered a leading light on the the Canadian jazz scene. Chucho Valdés has declared Durán to be one of the greatest Cuban pianists of the 20th century, calling him “an unparalleled pianist; composer and arranger of the first order.”
Duran’s work with Jane Bunnett, Paquito D’Rivera and Horacio “El Negro” Hernández, as well as with his trio, jazz quintet, Havana Remembered Orchestra and 20-piece big band have earned him international recognition and lead to many tours across Canada, Europe and the U.S.
Always looking to stretch his creative boundaries, Hilario Durán will perform his original compositions which reflect a wide range of influences including classical, jazz, traditional and modern Cuban melodies and rhythms; Afro-Cuban prayers influenced by gospel harmonies; American standards; Spanish styles, Flamenco-influenced melodies and Argentinean traditions.
This is a rare opportunity to hear this living legend of Latin jazz in Lula’s intimate setting.
Fusing funk, RnB, soul, flamenco and Cuban trova, Ade Meyi is the next generation of Cuban music in Canada. With influences as diverse as Amy Winehouse, X Alfonso, Daniel Caesar, Pablo Milanés, Jamiroquai and Mercedes Sosa, Ade Meyi, meaning “crown of two” in Lucumí, the Yoruba-derived liturgical language of Cuban Santería, features songs by co-leaders Zamira Lacosta and Tico Riveron.
Presented with support from Ontario Creates, Toronto Arts Council, Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council. and Heritage Canada.
