About "Immigrant Tales"

In a constantly evolving world, our spirits journey, settle, and adapt, making us all global wanderers at times. Our origins may surprise us, yet our birthplace and citizenship often shape our life's course. Some doors are closed, but the quest for keys drives us.

This suite, composed for a Jazz quartet and a small chamber ensemble, embarks on a journey through seven compositions. Each musical note is born from stories of perseverance, resonating with the silent struggles of unopened doors. Let us remember and honor those forgotten doors too.


  • "Flee"
  • "Keep Pushing"
  • "Paz Intranquila"
  • "4 am anx"
  • "Fantasia"
  • "Be present"

The creation of this composition was supported by a NYS Council on the Arts Support for Artists Grant.


About Gabriel Chakarji

Gabriel Chakarji is known for his unique blend of Venezuelan and New York City jazz music. Growing up in Caracas, Gabriel was exposed to a rich variety of musical styles, including Afro-Venezuelan folk, Caribbean, and Brazilian music, as well as jazz and gospel hymns. He eventually moved to New York City to explore new musical frontiers and has since performed at some of the city's most iconic venues, including Carnegie Hall, Blue Note, and Dizzy's Club.

Gabriel has released two critically acclaimed albums as a bandleader: "Vida" and "New Beginning". His composition "Enredadera" was nominated for best jazz single at the 20th edition of the Independent Music Awards in New York City. In 2022, Gabriel was awarded the prestigious Jazz Gallery Residency Commission and the ASCAP Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award. His 2023 NYSCA Individual Artist Grant is his most recent recognition as a rising talent in contemporary Jazz music
