Evi Esteves Evi Esteves

Denver-based pianist, Evi Esteves delights audiences with her eclectic array of jazz repertoire flavored with Latin, funk and r&b. The unique artistry of Evi's music gives insight to her open-hearted melodic soul and bares the influence of a diverse group of musical icons including Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Dave Grusin, Monty Alexander, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Eliane Elias and Michel Camilo. Aaron Dupont of Jazz Review Magazine writes “Evi Esteves is an intuitive and creative musical soul...”. Danny Ulibarri of KUHS Internet/Radio describes Evi as a “supreme talent”.

A first generation American of Peruvian descent, Evi Esteves began to demonstrate extraordinary improvisational skills at the age of four. Through private piano instruction, she developed technical and artistic skills in various styles. At the age of fifteen, Evi earned the role of lead pianist in the nationally televised spectacular, “One-Hundred Pianos”. Subsequently, she began performing throughout the western United States and Canada.

As a young adult, Evi's passion for Latin music led her to Brazil where she studied music at the University of São Paulo under acclaimed director Vinicius Luis Almeida Da Silva. During college breaks, Evi traveled throughout Latin America, primarily to experience the music of diverse regional persuasion.

Upon completion of her studies, Evi returned to the United States and became involved in teaching, composing, arranging and recording music. As she established herself in the Denver area, Evi worked as a music instructor while performing as a pianist, keyboardist and back-up vocalist with music groups of various genres. She later became the musical director of legendary pop sensation, Majestic City.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
