Christian Tumalan – Keyboard Pathways

Keyboard PathwaysBorn in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico Christian’s music career started at the early age of 7, where he began acquiring the most important concepts of music and live performance. In addition to his pianistic studies, he felt a powerful attraction to the art of composition. During a period of seven long years, he continued studying classical piano at the “Escuela Superior de Musica” in Mexico City. Later, he turned his interests towards Jazz, a language field where he felt a deep compassion and freedom. He then further developed his skills in live performance, Jazz and Big Band arranging.

His performing experience includes a variety of projects such as Jazz, Salsa, Pop and Latin Pop as well as Peruvian and Afro-Cuban music. He has also produced recordings for stage plays and broadcast “jingles”. Currently, Christian continues his musical studies in the United States. Christian Tumalan has also taken a myriad of professional music courses and workshops that have enriched his musical knowledge; from great musicians such as world reknowned music educator Gerald Wilson, master pianist Bill Bell, saxophonist Michael Brecker, Pat Metheny group drummer Antonio Sanchez, legendary jazz musician Winton Marsalis, Creator of the official Latin Real Book: Rebecca Mauleon Santana; and Mexican jazz educator for the past 30 years, Francisco Tellez.

Keyboard Pathways is a delightful and unique blend of smooth jazzy sounds with a Latin taste. This album is on sale at CDBaby.
