Gabriel Palatchi Band
As the leader and manager of the international Latin Jazz, Tango, Arabian, Afro Cuban and World Music fusion band, the ‘Gabriel Palatchi Band’, I’m contacting you in regard to booking a performance at your prestigious festival for 2013.
For the last two years the band has toured throughout various parts of Argentina, Mexico and specially in Canada, performing at important venues and international music festivals including the Coyote Jazz, Kaslo Jazz Festival, Starbelly Jam Music Festival, Caribbean Days Festival, Fiestaval Latin Festival and Central Music Festival among others.
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, Rolling Stone Magazine, The Toronto Star Magazine, Salsa Son Timba Colombia, Newstime South Africa, Ejazznews.com and Insideworldmusic.com among others.
