Latin Fiddler Productions
Jesús Florido combines his classical training with his studies of Afro-Cuban, Jazz, Rock, and Fiddle music to create a compelling artistry balanced on a fine axis of musical virtuosity and pure heart. Jesús incorporates the classical philosophies of the violin and many world music styles. These influences have guided Jesús through his success as a musician and teacher.
Utilizing both acoustic and electric violins combined with the latest technologies in his performances and recordings, Mr. Florido’s discography includes artists from both mainstream and eclectic music. Essential to Mr. Florido’s daily musical life is his teaching. As a founding member of El Sistema in his native Venezuela he is a highly sought - after teacher and clinician, Mr. Florido regularly conducts workshops around the world.

He emphatically states, “Music has to be part of every child’s development.”
With his violin as a compass, Jesús Florido heads toward a limitless musical horizon.
