Ania Paz

Jason Moran

Ania Paz, pianist and composer, is known for her modern and driving sound, impregnated by a new fusion of Caribbean and Afro-Peruvian styles, within the Jazz language.

She was born in Lima, Peru, where she started studying music at the age of 4, and wrote her first composition at the age of 6. Her passion for music took her to different countries and musical cultures, studying classical music as well as jazz, first in Germany with Günther Herzfeld, and then in the United States, where she got her Masters Degree. She is currently established in the Dominican Republic.
