Gabriel Palatchi was born on 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. He further expanded his studies with a degree in music from the Berklee international School from Argentina. 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 graduating in 2008, 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 the master “Chucho” Valdez. He continued his travels to Mexico, where he continued to expand on his musical studies and experience. These travels continue today. Gabriel’s 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, Arabian, Salsa , Funk & Electronic.

For the last two years the Gabriel Palatchi Band has toured throughout various parts of Argentina, Mexico and Canada, performing at important venues and international music festivals including the Kaslo Jazz Festival, Starbelly Jam Music Festival, Caribbean Days Festival, Fiestaval Latin Festival and Central Music Festival. The promotional tour for “Diario de Viaje” (travel diary), has been incredibly successful, creating a buzz in each local music scene that the band visits.

After the release of “Diario de Viaje” in 2010, the album was chosen as one of the best Latin Jazz albums of the year by JAZZ FM Toronto 91.1. The album is being played on several radio stations all over the world from Alaska through to South America, Europe and the Middle East and even as far as Australia. It has been reviewed and featured on the Latin Jazz Network, Ejazznews, Rolling Stone Magazine, The Toronto Star, Salsa Son Timba Colombia, Newstime South Africa, and Inside World Music among others.

Currently Gabriel is based between Canada (Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal), Mexico (Caribbean and Mexico City) and Argentina (Buenos Aires). The new CD ‘Caja Musical’ was released in may 2013, recorded in Buenos Aires with great argentinian guest musicians. Following the release, the Gabriel Palatchi Band will be touring Canada, Mexico and Europe showcasing his new CD.
