Adlan Cruz (born on November 28, 1968 in Bayamón, Puerto Rico) is a Puerto Rican pianist, composer and producer.

Cruz began playing the piano by ear at the age of three.[1] He released his first album in 1989.[1]

A graduate of the Hartt School in Connecticut, his studies were financed with a scholarship given to him by former Puerto Rico Governor, philanthropist and pianist Luis A. Ferré, whom he impressed early on with his talent.[2]

He sponsors a private foundation to benefit the youth of Brazil.

As part of his worldwide concert schedule over the years,[2] in December, 2000, Cruz performed live before 3.4 million people in Lagos, Nigeria.[3]

In early 2009 he recorded his ninth CD in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
