Pianist, composer and arranger, he belongs to the last generation of Afro-Cuban jazz musicians. Multiple award-winner, in 2018 he toured Europe with the JM Jazz World Orchestra. In 2021 he graduated in Latin Jazz from Codarts University and was awarded the Fulbright Scholarship for a Master of Music in New York.
He was awarded as the first place of the Under 25 category in the 2018 edition of our contest. Incredible artist, his winning entry was described by the judges as "excellent composition and soloing from the pianist", "energy and excellent execution all around", "portrayed both new and traditional in this jazz performance".
For his music Cippelletti takes inspiration from his Spanish and Franco-Cuban culture which he sythesized in his first album HYBRID/C, published last year, that he describes as a mixture, a "fusion project that shows how, regardless of roots and age, beauty always prevails and unites us over and over through the most universal language we know of... music".
