Sound to jazz, funk and soul, in a pop format, this is Funkadelic Swing! Static Gold brilliantly blends genres in a funky style, at once precise and sensual, illuminated by the voice and presence of singer Zaya. The group’s founders, Samuel Chaco (keyboard), Daniel Pombo (guitar) and Zaya Solange (lead vocals) are all three from various corners of the world, respectively, of France/Sweden, Colombia and Haiti/United States. They met a few years ago through the musical project Galvao, become a fixture of student nightlife. When they formed Static Gold, they included Louis Souverain (drums), Thomas Viardot (bass) and Beth McKenna (tenor saxophone, flute, clarinet). Based in Montreal, they recorded their first album “Speaking Easy”, launched at Cabaret du Lion d’Or in 2014. Gatherer and energetic, Static Gold promises an electric atmosphere!
