The phenomenally ethnic sounds of the talented Peruvian pianist Kiki Sanchez have filled the airwaves with a unique blend of soulful jazz and tropical fusion, and tonight he treats us to three sets of hot salsa. Born into the Latin jazz atmosphere, Kiki began his formal education to further his knowledge and training in Peru with Coco Macedo and Edermi Chavez. He became a well-rounded musician by playing with La Peru Salsa All-Stars, Orquesta Majestic (led by his father, Maximo Sanchez) and Anibal Lopez' La Unica. These experiences were the initial building blocks to his future abroad. He traveled to the US, settled in Miami, where he played with Jazz legends such as Jim Gasior, Cachao, Mike Gerber, Arturo Sandoval, Mike Orta, Eddie Barzola's Oriente, who took Kiki under his wing. Oriente, along with Diana Molinari and Cassandra Hanna, polished his classical technique.

"Blown Away" with Arturo Sandoval and Frankie Marcos was nominated for a Grammy for Best Instrumental Album. Also on "La Onda Latina", Frankie Marcos & Clouds was nominated for Best Traditional Tropical Album. KIKI has collaborated with Grammy winning producer Glen Kolotkin in numerous projects as well. KIKI's latest recording is a fusion of Peruvianfolkloric rhythms with modern jazz melodies. Featured on this record will be Afro-Peruvian singer Susana Baca.

As leader, he has released three CDs: "Dreams," "Two Worlds," and "Salsa Es Lo Que Hay."

He has also produced an instructional DVD titled "THE REAL LATIN PIANO AND INTRO TO AFRO-PERUVIAN RHYTHMS, VOL.1". This DVD will be showcased in all libraries nationwide. Currently, it is being featured by the world renowned Jamey Aebersold along with Chick Corea, Wynton Marsalis and many more jazz greats.

Kiki Sanchez Has been honored with the CASIO, Japan, endorsement for Latin America. Kiki will showcase all of Casio's keyboards across Latin America
