Giraldo Piloto began in music when he was 8 years old, at the Alejandro García Caturla Conservatory and graduated in the year 80 at the National School of Art, specializing in Percussion.

klimax02 His mother who was a piano teacher and his uncle one of the greatest percussionists in Cuba, also participated in his training.

He showed him how the Danzón was played, how it was brushed in jazz, everything related to the "sound" that had to be "removed" from the instrument, how the different sections of metal should be accompanied in a jazz band, etc. Things that he never learned at school, because the training he received at that time was absolutely classical which some named “symphonic".

Together with the NG La Banda orchestra, Giraldo Piloto manages to get his songs to dominate the national radio hit lists.

Also in this orchestra, he creates songs for Isaac Delgado for the album "Dado la hora", which received the category Egrem Prize and where three of his compositions have become great successes of radio and television. He becomes, together with energetic Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rublacaba, in the musical producer of the album "Con Ganas", achieving with it the Grand Prize Egrem in 1994. Currently Klimax is synonymous with good music, with more than 5 albums including one of Latinjazz and one DVD "live".


klimax01From a very young age, immediately, after graduating, he started in the Tropicana Orchestra, a place that became a new School. There he shared with very good musicians among those who remember Luis Franca as a great pianist, the Guajiro Mirabal incomparable, among others.

He knew Tosco from that time and later when he founded NG he asked him to join the group.

It was impressive to see those first arrangements, the way they were written, and the musicians with whom he shared an extraordinary experience. "Klimax was the name that came out of a contest we did on the radio and it seemed like an excellent idea, because it exemplified what we wanted to do and how we wanted to do it. Klimax represents all the impetus that we play in each performance, the maximum strength and dynamism of our staging, or in our albums or in the choreography of our singers, as well as in the interpretative feeling within each presentation, it's like giving everything; every time we come across a musical note."
