Cuban born Hilario Duran grew up in Havana in a musical family surrounded by a variety of diverse musical influences. He began working as a professional musician in Cuba’s Los Papa Cun­-Cun Ensemble, and in a variety of musical formats. Later on, in the 70’s, Duran was Chucho Valdés’ chosen successor in Cuba’s most modern big band, Orquesta Cubana de Música Moderna.

Hilario Duran has toured worldwide and performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Michel Legrand, and as part of Arturo Sandoval’s band, where he was pianist/keyboardist, arranger, and musical director for 9 years.

Chucho Valdés has acknowledged Hilario Duran as one of the greatest Cuban pianists of the 20th century, calling the Grammy-nominated and multi Juno-award winner “an unparalleled pianist, composer and arranger of the first order”.
