Gabriel Palatchi was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A lifetime of piano playing started when he was 8 and was cultivated throughout his schooling, resulting in a degree in music from the Berklee International School in Argentina. During this time, he studied under many great teachers of Blues, Tango, Jazz and Latin Jazz. After graduating in 2008, he packed up his piano and traveled aboard to build on his musical experiences. In Cuba, he met and studied with the world renowned pianist “Chucho” Valdez.

Now, teamed up with Jose “Chema” Gonzalez on drums and Kerry Galloway on electric bass, Gabriel is bringing his eclectic musical talents to the Kootenays. “Their live performance awed the crowds and left people wanting more,” says Kaslo Jazz Etc Festival. “We are thrilled to have Gabriel as the first performance in our series,” says Andy Stradling of the RCAC Performance Series Committee. “We believe this show will set the tone for an exciting season of diverse musical talent!”

Gabriel’s music is an original blend of different genres such as Latin Jazz, Tango, Funk, Klezmer, Gypsy, Reggae, Samba and Electronic, a representation of the many cultures which have influenced his music. “This fusion of styles comes from various countries, cultures, and religions. Certainly a highly musical journey through various exciting and entertaining cultural rhythms that seems to inspire the musicians.” – Don Albert – music critic – Newstime Jazzaholic South Africa.

The performance will take place at the Rossland Miners Hall, doors open at 7:00pm and the show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at Out of the Cellar in Rossland and the Charles Bailey Theatre Box Office in Trail. RCAC members receive $2 off the ticket price.
