Kilian Duarte doesn’t seem to be able to keep his hands away from his bass these days. Right now, the Berklee-educated musician is keeping himself more than busy playing with the prog metal bands Scale the Summit and Lattermath as well as with the jazz outfit Gypsy Jazz Experience. Beyond that, he’s also performed extensively with prog metal guitar phenom and fellow Venezuelan Felix Martin, Angel Vivaldi and a bunch of theatrical productions including Rent, Shrek: The Musical and Little Shop of Horrors.
FBPO’s Jon Liebman spoke with Duarte during the 2018 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California about the early influence Jaco and fusion had on his music, touring with Felix Martin and the cavalcade of different projects he’s working on right now.
