Artist Feature – Con Alma 02: Santi & Tuğçe
Sounds and Colours - UK
Santi (from Asunción, Paraguay) and Tuğçe (from Istanbul, Turkey) are musical polymaths based in Berlin who produce rich, atmospheric tapestries weaving soulful vocals and vibrant instrumentation with diverse club rhythms. For this Monday’s Con Alma they have put together a collection of their most recent productions. In their own words… “Rooted in the richness of diverse cultural and musical traditions, and motivated by a constant pulse for open-minded inquiry and innovation, Santi & Tuğçe reclaim the power of music to express something essential about human experience. To this date, they have performed in many major electronic and world music festivals, clubs, theaters, and concert halls throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America and received critical acclaim worldwide (e.g. Oye! on NPR’s “Latin Roots: Best Alternative Songs of 2019”, Songs for my Grandmother among Beehype’s “Best Albums from Turkey” in 2017).” Tracklisting Santi & Tuğçe – Alegria Santi & Tuğçe – Gelincik Santi & Tuğçe – Prima Vera Santi & Tuğçe – Respira Santi & Tuğçe – Lucido Santi & Tuğçe – Istanbul’a Santi & Tuğçe – Icaro Miret & Tuğçe Kurtiş – Paloma (Santi Remix) Santi & Tuğçe – Coco Astral Santi & Tuğçe – Inochi Santi – Minotauro The Con Alma series is a mug of hot coffee served on Monday mornings, to start your week off right. An hour of musical soul food that’s good for the body. Although the series’ name is taken from Dizzy Gillespie’s Latin standard, don’t expect an hour of frenetic bebop – this is gentle introspection, warm sunrises, shower sing-a-longs… and always with plenty of soul.
