“In Carnabailito (Nonesuch) he takes beats of Argentine music, and alters them digitally into dream material,” - NY Times


Carnabailito, Nonesuch, 2001. Produced with Gustavo Santaolalla



Combining Latin American indigenous and folklore sounds with modern technology is what Gaby Kerpel does best. His album Carnabalito was launched by Nonsuch Records and was produced with the Oscar winning mega producer Gustavo Santaolalla. He is also the man behind the making of De la Guarda and Fuerza Bruta, two high-impact Argentine performance plays that have been exposed in NYC and London and which have subsequently been released around the world.
In 2008, he composed and arranged the music for the central performance at Zaragoza’s International Trade Fair – “Hombre Vertiente” by Pichñon Baldinú.

At the same time, he has always dedicated to solo projects, which are becoming more and more electronic and veering towards Techno Folk. A Multimedia Concert with plastic artist`s visuals, Diego Chemes in which he surrounds himself with technolgy and autochtonous instruments. His work provokes many types of emotion and invites you on an introspective or a dance trip. In 2008 he brought out new versions of chamamé, zambas, chacareras, bagualas and coplas and some songs that have yet to be produced and performed at the Mercado de Musica Viva en Vic, España (and on a couple of tours around Brazil and Argentina).

In 2009, he began with some projects already under his belt which have included the pre-production of works for the ZZK of King Koya`s cd, his alter-ego as DJ, based in Latin America’s cumbia music and other similar rythms like hip-hop and reggaeton in which he remixes his own songs too.

Kerpel has found a unique way in which to express his folkloric idea of dancing and using the voices from his own cds and Latinamerica musicians, making his remixes innovative.
He has also produced a cd with a well-known folk singer from Salta, Balvina Ramos. This production contains both original and anonymous songs from the North-West region of the Andes. Two extremes of music united to create new sounds.
