The term “crossover artist” can mean many things. In the case of Argentine pianist and composer Dario Boente, it means a musician who is equally at home performing romantic Argentine and jazz compositions on a grand piano, as he is programming world-beat electronica.
Dario pursued his formal studies at Berklee School of Music (Boston), the Guildhall School of Music (London) and the New School Jazz and Contemporary Music Program (New York).
In 1999, Dario moved to New York City. Since then, he has released ten albums and compilations as a leader, featuring well know Jazz musicians as five time Grammy Award winner Antonio Sanchez on drums, guitarist Ronny Jordan, latin Grammy winner composer and pianist Fernando Otero, harmonica player Gregoire Maret, flutist Jorge Pardo and Saxophonist Miguel Zenon, among others.
Dario has performed in more than 20 countries worldwide and his compositions have been included in over two dozens of albums and compilations. Dario’s latest album “Limelight” (Circular Moves / Sunnyside Records) was released on December 2014.
