Pianist and composer Ania Paz has taken advantage of the fusion capacity of Jazz. A sample of that is the concert cycle she has been presenting…where she has shaken established structures, for the audience as well as for the artists that participate with her in this artistic adventure…
Pachico Tejada, Listín Diario, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

An abundance of joy! That freeing happiness is what you feel when you listen to one of Ania Paz´ composition. Sitting at the piano, she plays every melody with emotion...She uses every second…to create and imagine mixtures of sounds. Everything with one goal: sharing, giving to others what she likes the most…You have to listen to Ania Paz, since she expresses a universal joy that is understood in any language.
