- Not yet 30, Harold Lopez Nussa was born in Havana in a family of musicians who offered him a double French and Cuban education. After a solid classical training at the conservatory, winning numerous contests, jazz becomes his passion, and from the age of 20 he is fully dedicated to Jazz; playing solo, trio or quartet in the Havana clubs. His first tour brings him to some prestigious places, from Verona to London, from Vienna to Paris... In 2005 he wins the "piano solo contest" of the Montreux Jazz Festival, an award that enables him to record his first solo album "Sobre el Atelier". In 2007, he performs alongside Omara Portuondo for her "Gracias" tour and continues to perform with his trio, with whom he records a second solo album "Herencia" ("Legacy") released in March 2009 on World Village.
Today, still with his trio of his young brother Ruy, a drum prodigy, and bassist Felipe Cabrera, and lifted by master saxophonist David Sanchez, Harold delivers his next opus. On "El País de las Maravillas", recorded at studios La Buissonne in November 2010, Harold Lopez Nussa is asserting himself as a stylish composer and a powerful pianist whose technical abilities joined to a high sensitivity transcend his cubanity. He is standing in the heart of the jazz trend of today.

- "With his subtly interactive but lively trio occasionally augmented by singer Omara Portuondo and trumpeter Mayquel Gonzalez, López-Nussa has produced a highly effective calling-card, with Herencia, for his arrival on the international jazz scene." Vortex
