Sebastián Coloma is a Latin American singer-songwriter, composer, and music producer, based in Panamá City, Panamá. Influenced by Caribbean rhythms, Latin American folklore and other popular music genres, his music is known to be an eclectic fusion of styles, but with a characteristic latin feel to it.
Sebastián was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and he moved with his family to Panama City at the age of 11. Born to Peruvian parents, he was exposed to a wide range of musical styles and genres from early on in his life, and he began to play the guitar at age 12, writing his own songs soon after.
In 2012, Sebastián began working as an assistant sound engineer at Piso 3 Studios in Panama City, where he learned about music production and recording engineering. He went on to pursue a Music Technology degree from New York University in 2013, and at the end of his undergraduate experience, he started his solo-artist career with the release of his 2017 single, titled “Al Compás,” in all digital streaming platforms.
After the release of “Al Compás,” Sebastián began making a name for himself playing a variety of shows throughout New York City and collaborating with other local and Latin American artists. In February 2018, he released his second single, “Dime Tú,” which was accompanied by a full-length music video.
In 2018’s edition of New York University’s Ultra Violet Live, Sebastián was awarded with the title of “Best Performance of an Original Song” for his rendition of “Al Compás.” Recently, he released his third single “Encuéntrame en el Mar,” with an accompanying music video.
