Islander's Dilemma

From calm tranquility to raging storms, the sea hides a parallel world with Jazz. Both awaken many emotions in human beings.This is the artistic vision of Natanael Ramos, an islander used to having the sea on his horizon. With this in mind, he submerges us in an ocean of emotions, through the many cultures present in his home, Tenerife. One of the seven Canary Islands and a natural and historic meeting point between Europe, Africa and America. Using the melodies and rhythms of his ancestors he cooks up an original and eclectic repertoire that takes us to fly over the sea of clouds, walk on the black volcanic sand or watch the fury of the sea beating the cliffs. Through the sound of his trumpet he tries to delve into the very soul of every story he tells. At times, warm and introspective and at others, wild and attacking. Like the sea.

Introducing La Banda del Solar

"Latin-American rhythms has been part of my life since I have use of reason. I remember to listen boleros, son cubano and salsa at home when I was a child. Also, my first connection to jazz was trough latin jazz so for me has been a dream come true realize this album. I tried to explore the Latin-American sounds from a European Contemporary Jazz point of view with some of the best latin & jazz musicians from the Canary Islands. Some of them are really close friends and have been and are part of who I am right now. Such a pleasure!"

North Atlantic Jazz Connection

The North Atlantic Ocean is the connection between Seir Caneda & Natanael Ramos, but this connection is not only geographically because when you listen your music, you realize there is more connections between them. Seir & Natanael met at MUSIKENE in San Sebastián (Spain) and decided to create a band with friends to explore their compositions. In a couple of months the project got some recognition in competitions and festivals like Jazzaldia of San Sebastián and gave to them the opportunity to record this album.

This debut album was very good appreciated by journalist like Juan Claudio Cifuentes, who valued this work as the best national album of the year at his radio show in the Spanish National Public Radio.
