Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Gregorio Uribe is perhaps best known for leading a 16-piece big band that blends Afro-Colombian rhythms with funk grooves and powerful big band arranging, making audiences dance "'til they drop" to its funky Cumbia groove. His energetic and innovative approach to the music of his country has led him to share the stage with such renowned artists as Grammy winners Rubén Blades and Carlos Vives, and to perform at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Uribe performs with his big band the first Thursday of every month at the Zinc Bar in the heart of the Greenwich Village. He has also performed at the Rhode Island State House, Gloria Estefan’s Bongos Café in Miami, Regattarbar in Boston, and in New York City’s Highline Ballroom, SOB’s, and Iridium Jazz Club.
Although he continues to lead his orchestra, Uribe is on the verge of releasing his new acoustic album Pluma y Vino ("Pen and Wine"), which includes 10 beautiful songs that show a more intimate and romantic side of him. With its poetic lyrics and fresh take on Latin American rhythms, this album will capture the hearts of Uribe's audience in a whole new way.
