Venezuelan Kiko Schmitz studied cello with Professor Jens Peter Mainz at the prestigious ‘Hanns Eisler University’ in Berlin. Born and raised in Caracas, Kiko has relished the opportunity to return to his Latin roots with Emoción. Kiko thrives on expressing the full spectrum of human emotion through the richly evocative voice of his cello.

For me, this music is pure pleasure. It’s like a return to my childhood - the energy, the freedom and the spirit
