Biography

Luis Giraldo has successfully crafted a musical identity built upon the romantic melodies of his ethnic background, a hint of pop, and his passion for Jazz classics.

An accomplished pianist himself, Giraldo has toured with Grammy Award-Winning sensation Shakira on keyboards and background vocals, and traveled the world a multitude of ensembles.

In his travels, Giraldo has performed in many internationally acclaimed venues, (Universal Studios LA, Beacon Theatre NYC, National Auditorium in Mexico), as well as the most intimate clubs and bars in the U.K., Europe, and the Americas.

With his Vocal Jazz debut 'Day Dream' Giraldo finds "a dream come true", as he says, having had the opportunity to work with world-class musicians Chris Sigerson on piano, and Juno award-winning Rick Kilburn (Chet Baker, Dave Brubeck) on bass.

With songs on the album ranging from classic Jazz Standards to Brazilian Bossanovas, to Latin Boleros, one thing is for sure: there is an undeniable amalgamation of styles and rhythms present in the music that Luis lives, that will please the most discriminating listeners.

Luis performed at the 2006 Jakarta International Jazz Festival, and received wonderful accolades from the press. Read the Jakarta Post Interview at http://www.luisgiraldo.com/blog
