Diego Piñera
The drummer Diego Pinera grew up in Montevideo (Uruguay) and has now been living in Germany for several years. He studied drumming at the Berklee College of Music (USA), at the University of Music in Havana (Cuba) and at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Leipzig. He received lessons from Danilo Perez, Bob Moses, Jose Luis Quintana 'Changuito', and Kenwood Dennard.

Back in Uruguay he founded the Diego Pinera Trio and recorded the CD Buscando under the Perro Andaluz label.

He eventually returned to Germany, where he founded the Berlin Quartet and recorded Reflexiones featuring Tony Lakatos. In 2014 the Jazz Thing Next Generation Series Strange Ways followed. Pinera recorded his current album My Picture with Mark Turner and Ben Street in 2015 in New York. In May 2016 he played the cd.real.tour with Donny McCaslin and Phil Donkin.

With his Trio he achieved in his compositions a new, unusual approach to Latin Jazz. Sometimes this approaches Pop and Modern Jazz, sometimes he concentrates on the original, multi layered rhythms of this improvisational music. Pinera's playing is nonetheless always grounded in the Latin American musical tradition.

Diego Pinera was nominated in 2015 for the ECHO Music Prize in the category 'Best Instrumentalist of the Year'. In 2017 he received the prestigious prize ECHO Jazz for his album‚ my picture‚ as best instrumentalist national beside of his colleague Antonio Sanchez in the international category.

In 2018 he released his Album: Despertando. It was his debut with ACT Music.
