Gonzalo Rubalcaba was born in Havana on May 27, 1963 and began studying classical piano at age eight and playing nights locally.
He went on tour with Orquesta Aragon, visiting France and Africa in 1983 priorer to forming his band "Grupo Proyecto" two years later and being discovered by Dizzy Gillespie.
