Omar Puente : 14th March

Violinist, Composer, Arranger, Producer, Educator Omar Puente is a classical violinist with a heart that beats with a Cuban rhythm, a soul that is African, and a home in West Yorkshire. His career has been as varied as his life. He began learning violin at five, and at the age of thirteen, he travelled alone to Havana to take up a scholarship.

The next few years were spent studying classical violin and learning all he could about Cuban music and jazz. After graduating, Omar played in Cuban bands such as Orquesta Enrique Jorrin (with Ruben Gonzalez), and Rubalcaba¹s Charanga Tipica de Concierto (with renowned Cuban bassist, Cachao). He studied classical music as a member of the National Symphony Orchestra while learning jazz from musicians like Chucho Valdes. Since coming to England Omar has taught Cuban music and jazz violin at Leeds College of Music and Trinity College of Music.

Omar Puente (Electric Violin), Robert Mitchell (Acoustic Piano), Darren Taylor (Double Bass).
