Coladera is a merge of friendship and talent formed by Vitor Santana from Brazil and Joao Pires from Portugal. Both artists were eager to create a sound which they felt was missing in the Lusophone world: a true refelection between Portugal, Brazil and West Africa, especially Cape Verde and Angola.
With their latest Album “Lá Dôtu Lado” (“There on the other side“) they created an authentic example of their dream, featuring songs which emphasizes the close musical and cultural ties within the Atlantic triangle.
The lyrics of „Luz de Yayá”- written by much loved Angolan poet José Eduardo Agualusa – describes these close ties in a mystical and poetical way.
An epiphany on both sides of the Atlantic were the goddess called Yemajá on one side and Kianda on the other side. both are associated with the water and feminine mysteries.
The Remix of „Luz de Yayá“ has been produced and brought to life by Melodiesinfonie. he is a young producer, DJ and musician from Switzerland with a subtle feel for the soul of a track.
His approach to the song was very gentle and driven by carefulness which created a remix on an eye level with the original track.
This is another step forward for Coladera´s music getting into the limelight.
