Hello My name is Haziel Andrade. I grew up in DC but i was born in Bolivia. My passion and intrests aside from technology are playing piano and making music. I started playing piano when I was 16 but I didnt start performing till I was 18. When I got to VCU,I got very comfortable playing shows and performing shows by myself and others.Now I play keys for the band I am in called Los Malcriados with other students I have met here at school.
The genres that we play are funk,salsa and jazz. There are 10 people in our band. I am the only keyboard player. Then there is a brass section of three. There is 3 people on Percussion and then we have two guitar players and one bass player.That makes for a total of 10 people.
I am very greatful to have found a community of musicians here at VCU. The felt that the school I was in in a high school that didnt encourage being creative but I now feel pushed to be as creative as possible.I have found people and spaces I am comfortable in, but also encouraged to do better and be better!
