GALí is currently considered one of the best Latin Pianists in his genre. His mastery of the instrument and his creativity at the time of composing spontaneous melodies causes each person who listens to his music to experience the atmosphere of angelic sounds that exists in Heaven but here on Earth.

From his childhood sitting on the instrument at his Island of Puerto Rico, Samuel Galí Jr. began to show a talent that could only come from God because he had never taken lessons before. His father had purchased an Organ for the house but it was never used until little “Sammy” placed his hands on it.

At the age of 5 GALí had already composed his first song titled “Aplaudid al Señor” (Let us clap to the Lord). This joyful song was so popular among the people who knew him that it was actually recorded on the Album “Levántate” (Stand Up) from the children’s group Club Peregrinitos in Puerto Rico.

At 17 years old GALí was invited to be part of an All’Star orchestra of musicians and singers for a series of concerts throughout Puerto Rico. Among the musicians and singers who were part of those concerts were: Domingo Quiñones, Bobby Cruz, Yuri, Vico’C, Alex D’ Castro, Osvaldo Román, Pedro Brull, Julito Alvarado, Charlie Sierra, among many others. That experienced changed his life forever.

After those series of concerts, GALí had the opportunity to work with a lot of great Salsa Artists such as Tito Nieves, Tony Vega, Andy Montañez, Ismael Miranda, Jossie Esteban, Michael Stuart, Sonora Carruseles, Issac Delgado, Willie Rosario, NG2, Richie Ray & Bobby Cruz, Maelo Ruiz, among others. During this time GALí also had the chance to travel to countries like Colombia, Panama, Canary Islands, Italy, Curacao, Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Peru and other countries and cities around the world.

At the age of 19 he moved to Boston Massachusetts to study his Bachelor’s Degree at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. His studies at Berklee were key to the development and improvement of his performance at the piano.

At 23 years old GALí moved to the city of West Palm Beach in Florida to work as a Music Teacher within the County. It was at that stage that he fulfilled his goal of opening “ñ School of Arts”, the first all Spanish music school for the Hispanic community in Palm Beach County.

Within his entire musical success, GALí has never ceased to move away from the original purpose in music which is to positively affect the heart of the people through the talent God gave him as a child. This goal was officially met when in 2010 GALí released his first album “A Sound of Love” in which he uses the piano as the main character in order to bring peace, joy and relieve stress on each person who listens to the music.

At this stage of his life, GALí is staying busy promoting, creating, teaching and working full time in his greatest passions: his music, his family, his ministry and his relationship with God.
