Grupo Magnético


Grupo Magnético
Thursday 20th June 8pm
£16/£8 U26s

Hailed as one of the most exciting new voices in Latin music, GRUPO MAGNÉTICO started their journey in Edinburgh over 10 years ago when musicians from Salsa Celtica and other UK based salsa and jazz musicians were drawn together by a mutual love of classic 1970’s salsa, and an obsession to play homage to the music of their heroes. 

Directed by Toby Shippey, the band started out with a regular Edinburgh gig and, in what became a legendary 10 year residency, developed their own set and sound.  As their reputation grew, they were fortunate to work with an incredible collection of musicians, including singers Lino Rocha and Ricardo Fernandez Pompa and members of the iconic bands who had first inspired them.

Grupo Magnético’s debut album Positivo, tracked live in Scotland and then mixed in New York by Grammy award-winning producer Aaron Levinson, was released in 2018 on the highly acclaimed Scottish label Athens of the North. The album has been met with universal love and respect from DJs worldwide, including Radio 6’s Gilles Peterson and Craig Charles and has been included in many music critics’ Latin and salsa highlights of 2018. Tracks including Vampiras and their cover of Papa Was a Rolling Stone have become hits in salsa clubs as far afield as New York and Cali, Colombia.

Wow. Sounds like '74 downtown NY Fania Records... Absolutely brilliant…  BBC Radio 6 Music: Gilles Peterson

…. a scintillating, salsa-focused cover of ‘Papa Was a Rolling Stone’ by Scotland's Grupo Magnético…   BBC Radio 6 Music: The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show
