Rachel Ombredane and Stéphane Avellaneda are a flute and drums duo. Yes, that's correct, from the back of the orchestra and the back of the band to the front of the stage. Rachel earned her degree(s) in flute, musicology, and vocals at esteemed Parisian schools, and SteF cut his teeth on the world stage touring with Serbian guitarist Ana Popovic. Both have the skill to play and perform the music of their choosing, and together they are RoSaWay - a sort of pop, sort of electronic, sort of Jazz band with flute, drums, Rachel's otherworldly vocal, and a bit of help from Adam Ahuja on keys.
“RoSaWay intrigues with “Stranger”, a three tune offering which was written and recorded by the couple in Paris, along with some keyboard touches from NYC. The EP is released worldwide on the New York label Infinity Gritty with distribution via Ropeadope Records, and features bonus anthem “Freedom.”

FREEDOM (Bonus track) Music and lyrics by RoSaWay recorded at PINCH studio recording.
Anybody who’s ever found themselves on the rocks, having the blues,or in a bit of a funk should pick up this album, which is brilliant and totally elevating. Greg has spun the perfect thread of Rock, Blues and Funk and these tunes sound so great, anchored by Greg’s amazing voice and his electric, acoustic, and resonator guitars. Incredibly strong bass and drums rock the room, and the harmonies and vocals throughout have me humming all day.
Same as ever was, but even better.
This is awesome williams87
