Santiago Downbeat Short Info

Santiago Downbeat is full of surprises and happy to announce their first European Promo-Tour for the end of October and in November, Chilean Tsunami gets the old continent!
Our new EP will come out in October 2014.
Enjoy.

Santiago Downbeat is a band that rescues the Jamaican Orchestras format of the 60s, which were mostly instrumental. They were a reinterpretation of the popular North American bands of R&B and Jazz. The band works and interprets the traditional rhythms of Jamaica, such as Ska, Rocksteady, Burru and Reggae, through Jazz language and with the sound more R&B oriented, mixing the danceable and fun characteristics of Ska, with the interplay, harmonies and improvisations proper of Jazz, resulting in a sound that’s inspiring that doesn’t more words than just the music.
The band is composed of 12 members on the scene who, despite their short age, have a vest experience in the musical scene. Members are: Natalia Ramírez, vocals; Pablo Codelia, guitar; Rodrigo Muñoz, bass; Raimundo Barría, keyboards; Samuel Ponce drums; Mauricio Lobos Alto Sax; Pablo Jara Tenor Sax; Diego Muñoz Baritone sax; Ignacio Valle 1st trombone; Alfredo Tauber 2nd trombone; Italo Viveros 1st trumpet and Cristian Cerpa 2nd trumpet, arrangements and musical direction.
Santiago Downbeat has also participated on successful collaborations, such as the one with the visit of the Australian Orchestra “Melbourne Ska Orchestra”, which was supported by the entire brass section of Santiago Downbeat on their live shows, all regarding their presentations in Teatro a Mil Festival, leaving a very good impression in the Chilean audience, as well as on the international crowd. Another invitation was extended by the Chilean TV show “Doremix”, where the participation of the band led to the recording of the famous Rambler classic “El Rock del Mundial”, a session that counted on the full formation of Santiago Downbeat plus famed musicians as Quique Neira and Felo Foncea.
