Solar : Jazz/World

Formed in 2006 in Paris, France, the group presents their second album Seventy Latin Piece Of Soul for the French label Hot House Records. These French musicians-who are part of groups like: Imany, Soldat Rose, Gregoire or Alpha Blondy-interpret a fusion of latin, soul and boogaloo, with a touch of Caribbean rhythms. Their first album was Funky Tumbao (Hot House Records / Fat Beats, 2010).

The 14 pieces of production equipment were fully recorded and for this reason analogs counted with DJ Vas-member grouping Kojack-Electro-funk to blend this unique sound.

After a live performance with legendary Nigerian saxophonist Orlando Julius, was born a desire to work together on any project. This time the talents of both come together and the result can be tasted in the exquisite Ijo Soul, Orlando taped track in 1966 on their album Super Afro Soul for the Philips label. Colorblind, track that opens the album is an energizing download where Afrobeat and Latin jazz are combined with a touch of blues. Guapeta is the most interesting song for salsa dancers, unique cadence and electric guitar solo by Laurent Guillet make it irresistible for those wishing to get his partner. Smells Like Teen Spirit is a tribute to the great American musician Kurt Cobain and his group Nirvana, grunge Seventy comes together and boogaloo in this extraordinary piece. Hypocrite, one of the more catchy the album features a picaresque text framed in a rhythm of Latin soul.

Live French Radio

Osman crée Setenta en 2006. Son idée est de conduire des musiciens résolument Jazz-Funk vers le répertoire Portoricain.

La sauce prend rapidement. Les thèmes de deux maestros, Tite Curet Alonso et Cheo Feliciano, sont repris lors de plusieurs prestations live par ce combo de 7 musiciens, emprunts de fortes vibrations nées de Paris à New-york, en passant par San Juan de Puerto Rico, La Havane, Londres, Madrid, Valencia etc...

"One of the coolest Latin combos cooking today – a group who are heavily influenced by the funky Latin sound of the 70s, and who work here in a Parisian studio playing only on vintage instruments! If that sounds like too much hype, don't worry – because it's really just our way of laying out the wonderful groove of the record – a quality that really appears to our ears trained on classic styles, but which also comes across with the fresh, young energy of some of the best deep funk combos as well! Setenta do a great job of mixing up these modes – using lots of tight percussion, plenty of Fender Rhodes, and a great mix of horns – on titles that include "Colorblind", "No Te Creo", "Ijo Soul", "Yalale", "We Never Know", "Nuevayorkino", "Tira", "Mambo Machine", and a surprisingly great Latin remake of "Smells Like Teen Spirit". © 1996-2013, Dusty Groove, Inc."


"Cuando los puertorriqueños empezaron a migrar en masa a la ciudad de Nueva York, se llevaron con ellos un distinto sabor y ritmo musical. Nuestro sonido ha influenciado al jazz, soul y rock, y ha contribuido al nacimiento de géneros nuevos. Pero esa influencia también ha tenido un impacto global, apareciendo en lugares tan lejanos como Paris, Francia.

El pasado 19 de octubre de 2013 Soul Clave Radio Universidad tuvieron el placer de conversar con miembros de la banda “Setenta”, grupo multi-racial de funk latino que ha impactado la escena europea con su disco “Funky Tumba’o”. Comparte con nosotros mientras hablamos del alcance de la música latina, las producciones de la banda y tocaremos música de sus artistas y álbumes favoritos"
