"gives the classic new magic"

Evening Standard

Edwin Sanz was born in Caracas, Venezuela in the district of San Augustin del Sur.

His passion for the artistic world  was transmitted to  him by his family native from Barlovento where the afro-venezuelian culture  is  very strong  and  present and, more  particularly, by  his uncle  Reinaldo  Mijares, himself a  professional dancer and choreographer.

When Edwin was 6 years old and until his 18 years old, Edwin evolves within he joined the group 'Grupo Madera', as a dancer. It   is   also   during   this period that he began to study the percussion. The ‘Grupo Madera' promotes the afro-caribbean and afro-venezuelan culture through the dance, the song and the music.  The company travelled all around Venezuela as well as in other South American countries and Europe. The company has   also participated   in   various   and   important   television's shows.

The  12  traveling  years spent in  this  group  were  of  primary importance to  him  as  a  school  of  life.  This  gave  him  the experience  and  the  training needed  for  his  future  solo artistic professional career.

During  the  year  2000, Edwin  decides  to  stand  on  his  own  two feet   and   to dedicate himself only to the   music   as   a  percussionist.  In order to  extend  his  experience  and  to  develop his  artistic  career  he  takes  off  for  Europe.  He  arrives  at  first  in Paris-France  where  he  lives  few  years  and  get  settled  finally  in Geneva-Switzerland.
