RoSaWay is a Parisian pop duo consisting of Rachel Ombredane and Stéphane Avellaneda, whose music is born from an unlikely and original combination: the flute and drums. Bringing a refreshing “french touch” to the table, Rachel’s soothing voice beautifully bind together the pair’s instrumentation. With a pleasant reminiscence to 70’s theme-song-style grooves, RoSaWay combines vintage sounds with modern electro-pop beats for a satisfying blend of the present and past.
Both musicians have deeply honed their crafts and careers: Rachel earned her Bachelor's in flute, Diploma in music teaching and Masters in musicology at the Sorbonne in Paris and the Vocal Academy. And with an ambition to explore different musical genres, she found herself on television sets singing with international artists such as Ed Sheeran, Jain, Brocken Back, and in prestigious venues such as the Zenith of Paris.
Over his career, Stef has become a renown blues drummer and international touring artist. Stef started his professional journey as part of the blues band Mercy, and soon after was propelled to the big stage alongside the Serbian guitarist Ana Popovic. He became her official drummer and has toured around the world to over thirty countries, having shared the stage with legends such as Jonny Lang, BB King, Keb Mo and Buddy Guy.
RoSaWay’s latest single, Freedom was recorded in New York is being released worldwide in 2018 via Infinity Gritty, an NYC-based music label in partnership with Ropeadope Records.
