Celebrate music with gorgeous Latin Jazz by Chembo Corniel, called "the bright light of latin Jazz" by Latin Beat Magazine.  

Chembo honed his skills at The Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts in New York and at the prestigious La Escuela Nacional de Arte in Havana, Cuba under the direction of the great Chucho Valdés. His intense studies with such legends noted above channeled his energy onto a path where Wilson "Chembo" Corniel has now created a reputation for himself among musicians and the public. Today, he is considered as one of the best and versatile percussionists around.  

Among his credits, Chembo was chosen by Latin Percussion to create his own instructional DVD entitled An Introduction to Hand Percussion: Volume I - Congas.  This DVD was released in December of 2000 with distribution by Warner Brothers and has been a great success. 

His touring credits are as long as his performing credits.  Chembo has toured with many major artists throughout Europe, Asia, North & South America, and the Caribbean.  Television credits include an appearance on the "Bill Cosby Show" and a recurring recording gig on Nickelodeon's children show, "Dora the Explorer".Chembo continues to perform and/or record with many artists of different genres. He is currently concentrating on leading his own Latin Jazz group, "Chembo & Grupo Chaworó".  

Chembo received a GRAMMY NOMINATION by NARAS IN 2009 for "BEST LATIN JAZZ ALBUM" for his 2009 CD release entitled Things I Wanted To Do.This is a well-balanced Latin Jazz group that incorporates many rich traditions, such as writer Aurora Flores states:  "a sprinkling of be-bop, a touch of swing with a dollop of bomba, rumba, tango and danzón topped with ‘un chin' de charanga." Currently he is performing with famed musician Larry Harlow at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami. More info can be found at www.chembocorniel.com
