Musician Gregorio Uribe was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. At 17 he decided to explore different Latin music genres by backpacking and performing in streets, buses and beaches around South America.
After his adventure, Gregorio earned his degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston. During his studies, Gregorio was influenced by Jazz which propelled him to create The Gregorio Uribe Big Band – a 16 piece musical experience that blends Afro-Colombian rhythms with funk grooves and powerful big band arrangements.
Gregorio’s energetic and innovative approach to the music of his country has led him to share the stage with such renowned artists as Grammy-winners Ruben Blades and Carlos Vives, and to perform at venues including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
In February 2012, Gregorio released his solo album, Pluma Y Vino, at the Blue Note.
Gregorio performs with his Big Band the first Thursday of every month at Zinc Bar in the heart of Greenwich Village in New York City.
