Kiki Sanchez

Peruvian producer, composer, arranger, educator and pianist.

The extraordinarily Peruvian producer, composer, arranger, educator and pianist Luis Enrique “Kiki” Sanchez can capture the hearts of many through his variations of skillful and unique style that have filled the airwaves with a distinctive blend of soulful jazz, tropical, and afro‐Peruvian fusion. This gifted musician was born and raised in Lima, Peru where he studied piano with Coco Macedo and Edermi Chavez and started playing professionally at the age of 11. He became a well‐rounded musician by playing with his father’s band “Orquesta Majestic” doing corporate venues in Lima. Later he moved to Miami, FL where he has worked with several Jazz and Latin Jazz Artists. He continued to expand his knowledge and education at the Florida Atlantic University where Sanchez earned a Master Degree in Music Composition.

His musical journey has led Sanchez to release two Latin Jazz albums:

  • “Kiki Sanchez Salsa Project” (Diola Entertainment 2015)
  • “In a Quiet and Healing Mood” (Estreno Digital 2015) Music Meditation Album, this is Sanchez most important album because it achieves the real purpose of music which is to bring peace, energy, love and understanding.
  • “Too Many Notes” his latest single the first track of the Kiki Sanchez Jazz Big Band Project was released on May, 2016. Kiki has been nominated to the Grammys in several projects such as:

Finally, Sanchez is so exciting about his 501C3 Non‐Profit Organization “PW (Praise and Worship) for the Arts” where the mission is to help and provide music education to kids from less fortunate families and communities.
