SOLA ROSA is one of Kiwi music’s most evolutionary and enduring acts. With seven full-length albums, four EPs, a handful of hits, countless collaborations and numerous world tours, it’s been a near 20-year labour of love for the man behind the music, Andrew Spraggon.
OPENSOULS: a sprawling collective of self-confessed vinyl addicts, released their debut album ‘Kaleidoscope’ in 2006. Incorporating a classic hip-hop vibe, but drawing inspiration from jazz, soul, reggae, funk and blues, the album nominated for Best Urban/Hip Hop Album at the 2006 NZ Music Awards.
