AFRO FUNKE’ LIVE PRESENTS

SOLA ROSA
(New Zealand)
Since Andrew Spraggon’s first formative releases as Sola Rosa at the turn of the 21st century,
he’s steadily built a reputation for his deft synthesis of styles and quiet disregard for the niceties
of genre boundaries. With a catch-all sound encompassing the best of hip hop, reggae, jazz, latin, soul and funk all six of Sola Rosa’s critically acclaimed albums are a potent distillation of the music that’s influenced Spraggon over the course of his decade long career as a musician and producer. From a humble, self-released one man project to a decidedly deadly live collective, Sola Rosa has grown from a national treasure into an act of truly international repute….
