Gabriel Palatchi Band

Gabriel Palatchi was in born August 3, 1982 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At the age of 8, he started his first piano lessons. He then went on to study classical music at the conservatory Manuel de Falla school in Argentina. His studies led him to a Musical Production degree from the ORT High School in Argentina. He further expanded on his studies with a degree in music from the Berklee international School. During this time he studied under many great maestros of Blues, Tango, Jazz and Latin Jazz such as Alvaro Torres, Ricardo Nole and Ernesto Jodos. After graduation, he packed up his piano and started to travel to expand on his musical studies and experiences. It was in Cuba where he met and studied with several maestros including Hilario duran and the master “Chucho” Valdez. He continued his travels to Mexico, where he continued to expand on his musical studies and experience. These experiences led to the composition and production of his first solo CD entitled “Diario de Viaje” (Travel Diary). On this CD, he has gathered the musical arrangements from over 20 accomplished musicians from Latin America. With deep roots in Afro-Cuban and Latin jazz, he has fused together an original sound and style of music that includes Tango, Flamenco, Salsa , Funk & Rock. Currently, he is travelling and promoting his new album in Canada.

”...The brightest aspect of Diario de Viaje is the manner in which the ensemble melds together with Palatchi. He works the idioms and metaphors of various not-so- disparate cultures into a fine homogenous mixture that is both delightful and also quite full of surprise. As a result he is able to create a fresh look at the popular musical motifs of Argentina, Perú, Colombia, Mexico and Cuba. He is a skilled pianist, who plays with refreshing virtuosity. His mastery of the keyboard does not detract from his ability to play with nuanced expression. His style is so adaptable that he can play with fine tumbao, holding forth with some of the better known pianists of Cuba and other parts of South America

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
