About Anthony Ocana

Composer with a personal voice where layers of different genres – classical, contemporary, minimal, pop, progressive rock, Caribbean, Latin American and jazz - are interwoven in a unique, unclassifiable style.

He is born in the Dominican Republic on March 7th, 1980, is educated in the island, the USA and Spain, then becomes a Spanish citizen in 2007.

His musical path begins at age 5 when he asks his father for piano lessons; once he starts learning music, he knows he would dedicate his entire life to it. At age 14 he begins studying classical guitar and enrols in the National Conservatory of Music in Dominican Republic studying with guitarist Ruben Gonzalez. At 18 he receives a scholarship to study composition and guitar at Manhattanville College in New York, where he graduates with honors. At age 19 he invited to be the opening act of jazz pianist and multi-grammy winner Gonzalo Rubalcaba. At this concert is where Ocaña decides to focus his career on performing his original compositions. Few years latter he is again invited to be the opening act of Rubalcaba and Egberto Gismonti, one of his biggest musical influences. While living in New York, he works as a composer for the orchestra of Elliot Magaziner (former director of Frank Sinatra's orchestra) and studies with great musicians, such as Benjamin Verdery, Ingram Marshall and Mary Ann Joyce-Walter.

In 2002, Ocaña decides to move to Madrid, where he has been living ever since. Yet, years later his music can be enjoyed on a regular basis in the Spanish National Radio stations and other venues.

Ocaña has published six albums: A Paso de Cebra with Sebastian Lerner (2001), Anthony Ocaña (2006), Solo (2008), Wet Fields (2010), Placeres (2012) and "In Trance (la luna o los ritos del amor)" (2015) having received remarkable reviews for each one of them.
Compositor polifacético con una voz muy personal que reúne influencias de diversos géneros incluidos la música clásica, contemporánea, minimalista, rock progresivo, pop, contemporánea, jazz, caribeña y latino americana.

Nace en la República Dominicana (”R.D.”) el 7 de marzo de 1980 y se nacionaliza español en el año 2007.

A los 5 años de edad le pide a sus padres que le ponga en clases de piano y es ahí cuando empiezan sus estudios musicales sabiendo que iba a dedicar el resto de su vida a la música. A los 12 años descubre la guitarra y aprende a tocar guitarra eléctrica en diversos estilos Rock, Blues, etc. a la par que se prepara como guitarrista clásico para entrar al Conservatorio Nacional de la República Dominicana. En el conservatorio estudia con el maestro cubano Rubén Gonzalez. A los 18 años recibe una beca para estudiar composición y guitarra en Nueva York, donde se gradúa con honores. Con tan solo 19 años es invitado a ser anfitrión del pianista de jazz y ganador de varios premios "Grammy", Gonzalo Rubalcaba. A raíz de esta experiencia Ocaña decide interpretar solo sus composiciones y arreglos en sus conciertos. Más tarde vuelve a ser invitado como anfitrión de Gonzalo Rubalcaba, así como de Egberto Gismonti, una de sus máximas influencias. Viviendo en Nueva York trabaja componiendo música para Elliot Magaziner (quien fuera director de la orquesta de Frank Sinatra) y estudia con músicos de la talla de Ingram Marshall, Mary Ann Joyce-Walter y Benjamin Verdery.

En el año 2002, Ocaña se traslada a España donde reside actualmente.
