ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
SPARROW & BARBOSSA:
Sparrow & Barbossa is a DJ and producer duo formed by the Swiss Bryan Coletta and the Uruguayan Emiliano Haberli. Bryan is a pianist and comes from a musical family; his father is the legendary guitarist Francis Coletta who worked with artists like Whitney Houston, Quincy Jones, or Frank Sinatra. Emiliano was born and raised in an Uruguay region dominated by African colonials and was widely influenced by "The Culture Of Candombe," a pure African tribal rhythm from colonialism.
Since a very young age, Bryan has been influenced by Soul, Jazz, and Funk, which he uses in his creations with his great capacity for improvisation and versatility. Emiliano moved to Europe 15 years ago, where he connected with the electronic music scene, starting to form his style in the music world, playing drums for DJ Chus & Joeski on their classic track called 'El Amor.'
Bryan and Emiliano created a fusion between organic and electronic progressive sounds. Their age difference has a positive influence on both their releases and performance. While Bryan brings the freshness of modern sounds and melodies, Emiliano fine-tunes the rhythmic part and builds up his knowledge throughout the years. Globe-trotters, who're true lovers of ethnic and lost cultures, are devoted to transmitting this legacy through electronic music. Sparrow & Barbossa are most known for their version of Mory Kante' Yeke' released on Wired Records, that charted #1 Afro House and their remix of Fatoumata Diawara's 'Nterini' signed on MoBlack that charted #2 Afro House.
'Seven Seas' is their debut album on Redolent Music, featuring collaborations along with Idd Aziz, Dele Sosimi, Floyd Lavine, Josh Milan or DJ Chus to name but a few. 'NYakua' included on the album that charted #1 Afro House single on Traxsource. The Album is a milestone that will set a new course in Sparrow & Barbossa's career. They aim to transmit ancient cultures' roots and democratize World Music through Electronica. 'Seven Seas' is the perfect example, music coming from all cardinal points. The treasures and richness of 'Seven Seas' can't be categorized into one specific genre. It has a House Music core and is all about Organic, Latin, and Afro Electronic Dance Music. Now is the time to travel the world spreading the musical message of this 'Infamous-Afro- Latin-House-Pirates Duo.'
