Hilario Durán ‘Contumbao’ Quartet – Europe Summer Tour – Netherlands



Cuban pianist/composer Hilario Durán makes his instrument sound like an orchestra and this
virtuoso style makes him a favorite of legendary compatriot Chucho Valdés. With his ‘Contumbao’ Quartet he pays homage to Cuba’s rich musical history, with a repertory that spans the entire spectrum of Cuban music.

In the 1970s Hilario Durán was Chucho Valdés’ chosen successor in Cuba’s most modern big band, Orquesta Cubana de Música Moderna, which also contained members of the future group Irakere. Since 80s, Durán has worked with a.o. Dizzy Gillespie, Jane Bunnett, Jorge Reyes and Chucho Valdés and made his international breakthrough. His new CD ‘Contumbao’ was recorded in Cuba with the participation of Cuba’s top musicians.

Hilario has been a regular guest pianist, director, composer and arranger for the WDR Big band in Cologne, Germany. Hilario lives in Canada since the ‘90s, where he leads several groups and his own Latin Jazz Big Band. He was nominated for a Grammy, won several Canadian Juno’s and was honored with the Chico O’Farrill Lifetime Achievement Award for talent and outstanding contributions to Afro-Cuban and Latin Jazz.
