Lucia Sarmiento is a Saxophone player, Composer, and Educator based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her music is the expression of a diverse musical upbringing: the integration of jazz, funk, pop and latin american rhythms fused with her own sensibility for angular, yet beautiful melodies. In her debut album “Escape” (Spring 2024), Lucia leads a synth-heavy jazz quintet with the tenor saxophone. Additionally, she introduces delicate vocal arrangements, a flute choir and the EWI, like sprinkles of textures and colors in her playful jazz compositions.
 

In recent years, Lucia has gained a social media following of over 100k+ people, releasing educational videos in Spanish and English that provide a global perspective on jazz and saxophone.
She has represented and collaborated with brands like Yamaha, Akai, Theo Wanne, Eastman, RS Berkeley, BG, Jean-Paul USA, Syos, Key Leaves among others.

 

As a touring artist, Lucia has worked with international pop stars Pitbull, and Karol G since 2021, playing saxophone, flute, and guitar in sold-out stadiums around the world .
 

Born and raised in Lima, Peru, Lucia grew up studying artists like John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Chris Potter and Andres Prado.
In 2013, a Saxophone Performance scholarship brought her to Minneapolis Minnesota, where she has been an active member of the music scene ever since.
She has collaborated with esteemed jazz artists such as Chad Lefkovitz-Brown, Arturo Sandoval, Melissa Aldana, Randy Brecker, Bob Mintzer, Kurt Elling, Grace Kelly, Antwaun Stanley, Ella Briceno, among others.
