Singer, songwriter and accordionist, Gregorio Uribe was born in Colombia and currently resides in New York. Emerging as a graduate from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Uribe has forged a unique place in the music scene in both the United States and Latin America. Also leading the Gregorio Uribe Big Band, a 16-piece orchestra that blends cumbia and other Colombian rhythms with powerful big band arranging, Uribe released "Cumbia Universal" (Zoho Music) featuring 8-time GRAMMY-winner and Latin music icon Rubén Blades, in October 2015, Upon its release the album hit the Billboard charts and received widespread critical acclaim with sold-out performances in prestigious venues such as Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Most recently, the multi-faceted Uribe put together a smaller ensemble that highlights his songwriting and the presence of the accordion. This new format differs from the big band in its more compact size and organic style. However it stays true to its leader's danceable rhythm. Having introduced this new music in latest tour, which included Brown University, Gregorio Uribe is currently in the process of recording his next self-composed album.

Gregorio has been a guest artist with Latin icon Carlos Vives on several occasions including Madison Square Garden. He was also named by the government of Colombia as one of the "100 most successful Colombians abroad"
