About

INSPIRED BY DIFFERENCE.

The name is Robert Harman Sordam – Robby for friends. ‘Amsterdammer’, child from a father born in Mungo (Surinam) and a mother born in the Amsterdam area called ‘De Jordaan’.

Growing up in Amsterdam Robby is influenced by a diversity of cultural and musical styles. For years, Robby Harman presents his musical expertise in service of projects. He performs  on Kotabra / Kaseko Revisited. Robby Harma’s rendition of ‘Libi Tori’ holds on for seven weeks as number one in the Surinamese charts. Theatre Tours with cabaretiere Jetty Mathurin and concerts with the Metropole Orchestra followed. Robby introduces a new musical concept: Dutch Caribbean Crossover. Along with Iwan VanHetten he produces ‘Harmanized’. Robby maintains a special approach by giving new interpretations to existing Afro Caribbean music traditions. Doing this by crossovers of language, style and rhythm. It results in an own artistic color and can be described as a mixture of Afro-Jazz with nu-Soul, RnB and Blues. With the solo project ‘Harmanized’ Robby presses a to many recognizable and indelible mark on Dutch music culture. Two musical cultures are always richer than one!
