Hector Martignon

One of only a handful of musicians having been nominated several times for a GRAMMY as a sideman, for an OSCAR (as an arranger/pianist on the score of an Oscar-Nominated movie) and, most importantly, for a GRAMMY as a leader in 2008, HECTOR MARTIGNON has performed, recorded, composed, produced, and arranged music in myriad styles and genres for his own projects and for top musicians around the world. In order to steal a glimpse into the musical universe of this multitalented artist, one needs only to surrender to the music of his three solo CDs, “Portrait in White and Black”, “Foreign Affair” and his 2008 GRAMMY-nomoinated “Refugee” They are a metaphor of the diverse musical influences that have shaped his distinctive style as a performer, composer, and arranger, from Baroque polyphony to 21st century avant-garde, Balkan folklore to afro-cuban and -brazilian idioms.
