The Chicago-based duo is the multicultural collaboration between
producer Na’el Shehade’s chic Chicago house-infused production style,
and vocalist Via Rosa whose soulful delivery is inspired by the
improvisational nature of jazz and playful patterns of hip-hop and bossa
nova. The duo play to the complementary dynamics of their unlikely pairing
by blurring the lines between R&B and dance-pop, heartbreak and bliss.

Dance Without Me is a refined collection that recasts romantic tragedy as moonlit self-acceptance, as heard on singles “Years” / “Hold On” / “Gimme Gimme” / “Nine One One.” It’s a remarkably refined album for a young band, with Rosa’s lyrical candor creating expressionistic narratives about interpersonal intricacies all finessed for the club by Shehade. As a lyricist, Rosa takes her blues and makes them vibrant — rather than wallow alone. There is lush lovelorn affliction blended into the tracks on Dance Without Me

Since a chance meeting in 2014 lead to the creation of DRAMA, the Chicago-based duo has bootstrapped a subtle rise on their own terms, self-releasing several EPs and mapping multiple tours with Midwestern grit. Rosa & Na’el will kick off their headline North American tour later this month. See dates below and be sure to see them for a taste of their gorgeous new music.
