“Danilo Pérez is a man with some serious jazz cred. The Panamanian pianist got his start playing with Dizzy Gillespie, and continued with Wayne Shorter. As a composer and bandleader himself, he’s practically peerless.” – NPR 

Jazz piano master and UNESCO Artist for Peace Danilo Pérez unites his twin passions of music and humanitarianism in this international sextet boasting musicians from Palestine, Greece, Jordan, and Panama—all contributing and combining their respective cultural learnings and personal experiences with the goal of building community through music.
