Septeto Internacional is a unique combo of seven musicians from Europe and Cuba.The repertoire consists entirely of original compositions in the afro-caribbean and latin jazz styles. It is music for the ears as well as the legs, for music lovers and dancers alike, performed by three wind instrumentalists and an explosive rhythm section.
The bandleader and composer, Michael Fleiner, is always searching in his compositions for interesting ideas from different styles to develop latin jazz and afro carribean music and to give it a personal touch. In his music you can find jazz harmony as well as contemporary rhythm concepts, traditional and modern latin music, or even ideas from serial and dodecaphonic music. These very different elements are always packed in a hot and spicy latin groove.
The Septeto Internacional has already performed in Europe as well as in Cuba, where the band was invited to present its music at the international Jazz Festival “Jazz Plaza”.
From 2014 the band has a new excellent horn-section: the cuban trumpet player Juan Munguía (Irakere, Chucho Valdés, Jon Fadis, Paquito D’Rivera, Joe Henderson, etc.), the spanish alto sax player Lolo García and the swiss trombone player Bernard Bamert (Grand Mother’s Funck, Dave Regan Jazz Orchestra). In 2014 also a new CD came out with Fleiners new compositions. Don’t miss the occasion to hear and see this extraordinarily exciting band with excellent musicians coming from five different countries.
