To say that LEO BLANCO subscribes to just one musical role would be insufficient.

The music of pianist, composer, and educator LEO BLANCO pulses with global rhythmic elements influenced equally by his South American roots and European classical traditions interwoven with improvisatory developments.


Blanco was born in the Venezuelan Andes where he absorbed folk music genres that were a mix of Afro-Caribbean, North American and European musical styles. By age eleven he was a violinist in the Merida Youth Symphony Orchestra.


Leo became the first Latin American to win to the prestigious Boston Jazz Society Award, and he has received the Billboard Grant Award for his commitment, achievement and contribution to society through music.

He has shared the stage with major international jazz artists including Terence Blanchard, Pat Metheny, Chucho Valdez (Irakere) and Joao Bosco. He has performed at numerous festivals including the Montreaux Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, Edinburgh International Festival, and the Latino Festival and at the Kennedy Center.
