Meet: Sola Rosa

Auckland, New Zealand may not be the first place I would think of for a meld of R&B, Latin, hip-hop, jazz, and neo-soul. However, thanks to Mark Spraggon, leader of the band Sola Rosa, that can be the case. Spraggon has been making music as Sola Rosa, first as a one-man band, but now as …

Thanks so much for reading.
