The first woman to win the Montreux Jazz Piano Solo Competition in 2012, Havana-born, German-based master pianist Marialy Pacheco is described by Dominican piano virtuoso Michel Camilo as “one of the key players of her generation.”  

Born into a musical family in Havana, the budding musician began piano studies in her youth and entered the esteemed Escuela Nacional de Artes at fifteen. Winning the 2002 Cuban music competition Jo-Jazz, where she was judged by Chucho Valdés, Pacheco began a career as a professional, moving to Germany and releasing her debut album, the 2005 trio album Bendiciones.

Numerous albums and innumerable concerts around the world followed, including her classical piano debut with Australia's Queensland Symphony, numerous orchestral performances of her project Danzon Cubano, and the 2017 release of her album DUETS, featuring duos with bandolim great Hamilton de Holanda, pianist Omar Sosa, trumpeter Joo Kraus, percussionist Rhani Krija, saxophonist Miguel Zenón, and vocalist Max Mutzke.

Her latest recordings are her second duo collaboration with Sosa, Manos, and the trio album Reload, with guests Avishai Cohen, Nils Wülker, Karl Perazzo, and Rhani Krija.

She debuts in the Joe Henderson Lab three days after the SFJAZZ bow of her brother, rising piano master Jorge Luis Pacheco.
