“Under The Sun” is a down tempo world-music styled song, composed by Olessia Tourkevitch (Missoless) & Erik Rico. The arrangement and programmation is also by Olessia Tourkevitch while the words & voices are by Erik Rico.

The film imaging for this video was produced by Olessia Tourkevitch.

The song “Under The Sun” is gentle, laid back but yet very uplifting, almost like a calm ocean carrying the slow, swelling power of it’s waves. The impeccably sultry voice of Erik Rico, beautifully intertwines with the inspiring images projected on each and every frame. Messages of inner-strength, brotherhood and harmony transpire throughout the music, words and pictures captured within the visual and aural compositions. Strongly lending to the power of communication that the video exhibits.

About Erik Rico

Multi-instrumentalist, writer, producer, singer and DJ Erik Rico was born into a family of musicians in North Carolina. As a child, Rico was exposed to music by a Jamaican-American uncle who was a professional touring musician. His uncle played saxophone, flute and percussion and performed with many notable artists. Growing up in the 1970’s and 1980’s made for a very interesting musical dynamic due to an oncoming culture known today as hip-hop.
Rico’s production credits include Tupac Shakur’s 2001 release The Rose That Grew From Concrete LP, Planet Asia’s Life As It Is LP, Jurassic 5’s Linguistics single, and Ladybug Mecca’s (Digable Planets) The Return of Mecca LP. Rico has also collaborated with artists like Carmen Rizzo and Doc (Esthero) and scored the feature film They Call Me Sir and the documentary One Night at the Grandstar.
Rico has continued to evolve as a producer and artist and now fuses elements of live music and electronic music into a style of music that can best be described as “electrosoul”. “I see our generation as the last ones to bridge the gap between the organic human feel of live musicians and the computer generation.” Rico’s philosophy is that having the best of both worlds to extract from makes it easy to truly explore all the limitless options that art has to offer.
