Pablo Luis Cardenas is a pianist with the ability to play in a multitude of styles each with enthusiasm, skill and finesse. He has a charisma and charm that both intrigues and entertains his audience.

This talented musician originates from Cuba and was destined for a life in music after his hands first touched a piano at the age of five. When he was seven years old began his studies at the Conservatory of Music in Matanzas and went on to complete his high school diploma in music. Pablo studied at the Conservatory for seven years before heading to the National Conservatory of Music in Havana in 1997 and graduating in 2005 with a master in Classical music performance. In the years after he went on to work as a piano teacher at the Conservatory of Music in Matanzas, teaching music theory along with classical and popular piano styles to children and young adults. At the same time he was worked as a classical piano accompanist at the Conservatory and was selected to travel to the National Music Conservatory of the Dominican Republic [directed by the prestigious pianist Ivan Dominguez] to teach workshops and performing.

Pablo has performed Classical recitals in the theatres of Havana including the famous Amadeo Roldan Theatre as well as collaborating with many accomplished musicians including singers Leo Vera and Paulo FG as well as his own jazz project performing jazz, fusion, Latin jazz, traditional and contemporary Cuban styles.
