Gabriel Palatchi Trio
Gabriel Palatchi is a triple-threat global musician. First, the 34-year
old Argentine-born pianist is a world class artist whose latest recording,
Trivolution, was selected as a Gold Medal Winner in the Composer/
Album categories and on the Top Ten 2015 of the Global Music Awards.
Also, Trivolution was featured in the Emerging Artists section of the
April 30, 2016, issue of Billboard Magazine. Second, although Gabriel
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, he packed up his piano soon after graduation in order to
expand his musical horizons in Cuba and Mexico. It was in Cuba where
he met and studied with several maestros including the master “Chucho”
He currently divides his time between Canada, Mexico and Argentina.
Third, Gabriel is highly conversant with a range of culturally diverse
styles, including tango, funk, klezmer, gypsy, reggae, samba and
electronic, and he has a knack for collaborating with some of Latin
America’s finest musicians who share a commitment to keeping folklore
dynamic. For the last seven years the Gabriel Palatchi Trio has toured
throughout Argentina, Mexico and Canada, performing at important
venues and international music festivals.
Gabriel Palatchi’s brilliance is how he re-imagines traditional art forms,
frequently using the transitions within his original compositions to
weave in old segments of folk music, thus achieving just the right
contrast between old and new. Gabriel’s youthful spiritedness and
playful ingenuity exemplify why South American music continues to
evolve and grow in popularity.
