Gabriel Palatchi Trio

2:00 p.m. | $15 (cover at door)

Gabriel Palatchi is a world class artist. His music embodies a complex flavour of genres. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1982, Palatchi started his first piano lessons 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 Berklee International 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 solo album “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” (2017), which also happens to be his first live recording. For the past 8 years Gabriel has been performing at major international music festivals, touring throughout Mexico, Canada and Europe. His music is broadcast across radio stations all over the world from Alaska through to South America, Europe, the Middle East and Australia. It has been reviewed and featured on Rolling Stone Magazine, Latin Jazz Network, Ejazznews, All About Jazz, Jazz Caribe, The Toronto Star, Salsa Son Timba Colombia, Newstime South Africa, and Inside World Music amongst many others.
