Sunlightsquare is a London based project created by award winning pianist, producer and DJ, Claudio Passavanti. In 2010 Sunlightsquare's salsa version of I Believe In Miracles (from the CD Havana Central) became a cult success within the Latin circles worldwide, with the support of DJs Gilles Peterson, Louie Vega, Jazzie B, Tony Humphries and Joey Negro to name but a few.
Claudio's long affair with Afro-Cuban music has allowed him to produce several recordings in Havana, in collaboration with percussionist Giovanni Imparato. Today Sunlightsquare Records release several projects including trumpet player Quentin Collins and saxophonist Brandon Allen. Claudio produces a
monthly podcast that generates 10,000 downloads and is producing remixes for record labels worldwide.
Sunlightsquare's 5th album Britannia Shing-A-Ling, a 25-piece band live studio recording released in 2011, was defined by BBC Music as 'A triumph' (www.bbc.co.uk/music/reviews/zg8r).
