“Music to me has always been a lifesaver. It has helped me understand parts of me that I was never able to describe with words. And it was through music that I connected with my roots, to my identity as a Latin American artist, a citizen of the world.”
Sebastián Coloma is an innovative singer-songwriter and composer from Caracas, Venezuela. His music is known to be an eclectic fusion of styles with a distinct Latin flavor, influenced by Caribbean rhythms and melodies, Latin American folklore and other popular genres.
His songs have received wide critical acclaim, winning international recognition such as New York University's “Ultra Violet Live” award for Best Original Song, for his interpretation of “Al Compás.” His talent has allowed him to work alongside some of the best Latin American artists of the moment, and to participate in recognized music festivals such as “Polar Nights” in New York City, and “Musicalion” in Panama City.
Currently, Sebastián just released his first EP, titled “Al Compás,” consisting of 5 songs including his hits “Encuéntrame En El Mar” (2019), and “Al Compás” (2020), featuring Panamanian band Llevarte A Marte. This EP marks the end of Sebastián’s first cycle as an artist, giving way to a new musical stage alongside widely recognized Latin American producers.
Sebastián was born in Caracas, Venezuela, on June 10th, 1994. Born to Peruvian parents, he spent a large portion of his childhood traveling to Perú, and when he was eleven years old he moved with his family to Panama City, Panamá, where he finished his elementary and secondary studies. In 2013 he began studying Music Technology at New York University, where he went on to get a Master’s degree as well. Some of his musical influences include artists such as Natalia Lafourcade, Jorge Drexler and Andrés Calamaro, but he also draws inspiration from Latin America’s cultural diversity, portraying his own identity in his songs.
