American pianist, songwriter and arranger Arthur Hanlon is widely regarded as the best-known instrumentalist in the Latin music realm. Born to Irish- American parents, he hails from Detroit, Michigan, but found his calling in Latin music and has received widespread recognition in that realm, becoming the first pianist to reach the Billboard Latin airplay charts in more than a decade and the first to have a No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart.
Arthur’s latest project is “Viajero,” a CD/DVD documenting his travels through 8 countries –Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Mexico and Cuba in Miami. His last album, “Encanto Del Caribe”, was filmed live at Puerto Rico’s historic San Cristobal Castle featuring Hanlon on piano with several guest artists: Marc Anthony, Laura Pausini, Natalia Jimenez, Cheo Feliciano, Bernie Williams and Ana Isabelle . “Encanto Del Caribe” was also produced as a special for public television and has aired throughout the United States.
