Piano Player Gadi Lehavi was born on 29 April (He is privileged to share birthday with the great Duke Ellington) 1996. Playing by ear from a very early age and experimenting with improvisation drew Gadi naturally to jazz. 

A visit to New-York opened a door to the world. He was discovered by the renowned jazz musician Ravi Coltrane, who invited him to play together at the famous "Village Vanguard" and "Birdland" jazz clubs.
