Though still in his twenties, Peruvian pianist Kiki Sanchez has played for President Clinton and studied under jazz greats such as Jim Gasior, Mike Gerber, and Mike Orta. Sanchez has mastered styles as seemingly disparate as jazz, classical, Andean, gospel, Brazilian, R&B, blues, pop, Afro-Peruvian, and Afro-Cuban. Now you can catch Lima's hottest import tickling the ivories at Miami's MoCA this Friday.
The Kiki Sanchez Quintet performs Friday, September 30, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Joan Lehman Building, 770 NE 125 St, North Miami. The concert is free and begins at 7:00 p.m. For more information, visit www.mocanomi.org, or call 305-893-6211.
