After months of hard work and collaboration, the result is “Rosa,” the second single from Mia’s highly anticipated EP “TAMBOR.” This extraordinary blend of tradition and innovation is a sonic journey that seamlessly weaves together the threads of Afro-Colombian heritage into a drum-fueled, electronic dance anthem.
While working on her EP in Colombia, Mia stumbled upon Maginé Diaz’s soul-stirring track “Rosa.” The moment she heard it, she was captivated by its raw emotion and the rich cultural heritage it represented. What happened next was truly extraordinary. Mia enlisted the help of Totó La Momposina’s granddaughters, who, with their incredible talent and passion for their heritage, re-recorded “Rosa” in a way that preserved its roots while bringing a fresh, innovative twist to the timeless ballad. The result is a fusion of tradition and innovation, a sonic journey that seamlessly blends the old and the new, creating an electronic dance anthem that will leave you breathless.
Listening to “Rosa” is like taking a trip through time and space. The haunting melodies and powerful vocals transport you to the heart of Colombia, where the rich cultural heritage is celebrated with every beat of the drum. The electronic elements add a contemporary energy, infusing the ballad with a fresh, modern twist that will have you moving and grooving to the rhythm.
Through her collaboration with Totó La Momposina’s granddaughters, Mia Moretti has not only overcome the challenges of sample clearance but has also created something truly special. “Rosa” is more than just a song – it is a testament to the power of music, the ability to bridge cultural divides, and the importance of preserving and celebrating our heritage.
