Miguel Angel De Armas

Internationally renowned Cuban pianist Miguel de Armas moved to Canada in 2011, bringing with him a rich and sophisticated musical heritage gleaned over many years of study, performance and creation. As co- founder of N.G. La Banda — one of Cuba’s most legendary bands — de Armas packed concert halls around the world. For over a decade, Miguel toured with this band and performed at prestigious Jazz festivals and venues around the world. Miguel has recorded over 60 albums, and collaborated with renowned Cuban and international artists and musicians. In 2012 Miguel brought his musical talents to Ottawa, which he considers his adopted home. Since then he has been introducing audiences of the National Capital region to the works of an original Cuban talent whose performances are nothing short of a master class in Afro Cuban jazz. Miguel Angel trio will feature Cuban percussionist Magdelys Sav and Grammy winner Bass player Roberto Riveron.
