Fidel Cuellar

A native of Bogotá Colombia, Fidel relocated to New York City in 2007 to continue his apprenticeship as a jazz pianist and composer, under the tutelage of renowned musicians Bruce Barth, Mike Holober, and John Patitucci, graduating Suma Cum Laude from the City College of New York’s jazz performance program in 2009.
