Pablo Ortiz was born in Morelia, Mexico. He took early guitar lessons from his father and at the age of ten, Pablo became part of “La Mueca”, his father’s music-theatre company, where he developed his skills as a guitarist and took his first steps as an actor and composer. From 1987 until 1995, he toured all over Mexico with La Meuca and they also traveled to Cuba, France, Germany, the Czech Republic and Spain.
In the autumn of 1996, he moved to the Czech Republic where he studied classical guitar and composition at the Prague Conservatory for six years, and performed with different bands at clubs and theatres in Prague and abroad. This is where he first met Erik Visser in 2001.
In 1999, Pablo composed the music for an album which was recorded by his “Ad Libitum” ensemble.
In 2002, Pablo moved to Seville in Spain where he spent four years studying composition at the Manuel Castillo Superior Conservatory. He graduated in 2006.
In 2005, Pablo spent the summer at Erik Visser’s house in the Netherlands composing and arranging the music for 'La Procesión', a music-theatre performance by 'La Mueca' featuring Visser and Ortiz as guest musicians. 'La Procesión' was performed in some of the most prestigious theatres in Mexico.
Pablo moved from Spain to Gent in Blegium, in 2006. Pablo Ortiz became a member of the new Flairck line up in the winter of 2007.
Since 2012, Ortiz has been working both in Belgium and in Mexico on an ‘international music recording project’ called 'Cronofonia', based on compositions by his father Joaquin Ortiz and himself.
