This evening, saxophonist Sebastian Pinillos brings The Odiaga Project, a quartet performing Afro-Peruvian folk music arranged in a jazz setting, incorporating native Peruvian instruments.
Born in Lima, Peru but raised in the northern city of Trujillo, Sebastian Pinillos took up the tenor sax at age 12, the flute at 18 and the clarinet at 21, and has been performing professionally since 2012. From the Bahamas to Peru to New York, he has had the opportunity to play with world class artists in genres from reggae to jazz to Afro-Peruvian music.
Between 2018 and 2021, Sebastian lived in South Florida and spent time fostering his community by working with nonprofits focused on providing music education to low-income schools. In 2021, he moved to the Bay Area to spend a year at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in the Roots, Jazz & American Music program.
Currently residing in Oakland, Sebastian performs locally and is working on his new album with the Odiaga Project, focused on jazz-infused Afro-Peruvian music.
You’ll get a full platter of that material this evening at Bird & Beckett.
