Singer-songwriters Solange Prat (Argentina) and Gregorio Uribe (Colombia) came individually to New York City to develop and nurture their musical careers. Working in a
city that is a mecca of art, culture and music, both artists have successfully been able to establish themselves in the Latin music scene with their own unique projects. Inevitably,
through their music and performances, their paths crossed and they were able to come together to create. More recently Prat and Uribe have teamed up to form a singer songwriter duo,
where they not only perform together, but also co-write original songs that tell stories shared and experienced by both.
Solange Prat, originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, has been living in New York City for the past eight years. Trained as a vocalist in jazz, blues, soul, Latin and contemporary music, she has established herself as one of the main Latin voices in the underground scene, as the front woman of the 11-piece Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra, with whom she just released their second album, DIALECTICA. As a songwriter, she just released her single “Doce Años”, featuring the Latin Grammy winners (2017) of Flor de Toloache, together with other renown musicians from the NY scene. She also has experience in television, theater (Hairspray, Rent) and working with international artists, such as Enrique Pinti, Joan Baez, Eva Ayllon and Bahiano among others.
Colombian singer-songwriter and accordionist Gregorio Uribe was currently resides in New York. He graduated from Berklee and went on to blend cumbia with big band. His
release of "Cumbia Universal” featuring 8-time GRAMMY-winner Rubén Blades hit the Billboard charts and received critical acclaim with sold-out shows at Lincoln Center. He
performed at Madison Square Garden next to GRAMMY-winner Carlos Vives and was named "100 most successful Colombians abroad”.
