Xavier Perez

Raised in the Hialeah, Florida area to Cuban parents, Xavier represents two distinct cultures in his musical compositions and life. Although he has chosen jazz music as his vehicle for self-expression, elements of his Cuban Folkloric and American jazz upbringing also make his multi-faceted musical personality.
