Edwin Hosoomel is a Panama born singer-songwriter. He has lived the last decade in Germany, calling Hamburg... home.
His love for the music started when he was 6 years old and a record machine came to his hands.
Assigning a genre to Edwin’s work is a difficult task due to his musical versatility. Armed with a loop device and a sultry voice, Edwin takes you into classical emotions together with experimental compositions and the raw energy of independent music.
The result? ...a very minimal, elegant, but still powerful sound.
Edwin’s debut EP Lighthouse was chosen as “Best of 2018” by Beehype. He is currently working on his second EP “Caribbean Diablo”, which unfolds a beautiful combination of Latin and European sounds
His debut single "Games in the darkness" is about intensity and power in an unequal relationship. It was released on March 03, 2017. (A couple of weeks after the release Edwin was chosen by the German radio station Detektor.FM as "Best Newcomer" and recommended by the French magazine Les Inrockuptibles as "Must-to-listen artist"). After these accomplishments, Edwin released his second single “Doo Wop (That Thing)” as a tribute to the amazing Ms. Lauryn Hill.
