Gabriel Palatchi Solo Concert

Gabriel Palatchi is a world class musician and composer, his music embodies a complex flavour of genres. Gabriel’s songs are a representation of the many cultures which have influenced his music over the years, with a deep core in Latin jazz.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1982, Gabriel Palatchi started his first piano lesson at the age of 8. He spent his formative years in Buenos Aires studying classical piano, and being mentored by some of the great maestros of blues, tango, jazz and Latin jazz.

After graduating in 2007 from BerkleeInternational School, Argentina, he spent several months in Cuba where he studied latin jazz with the master “Chucho” Valdez.

Gabriel subsequently became a composer when he moved to Tulum, Mexico in 2008, and his life experiences up to that point influenced the composition and production of his first soloalbum “Diario de Viaje” (Travel Diary) in 2010. The album received critical acclaim from music industry journals, and was chosen as one of the best Latin Jazz albums of the year by JAZZ FM Toronto. He went on to record a further 3 albums that cemented his unique sound, culminating in his 4th and latest album, “Made in Canada” (2018), which also happens to be his first live recording.

It is with great honour that The Hispanic Canadian Alliance of Durham, welcomes Gabriel to our cultural event of the year!
