About the event
Sonamo' meaning comes from a dialect word from Napoli (ITALY) which literally means “play now!” but it's actually slang for "show me what you got [in a provocative way]”.
Italian music is well known and often associated with its classical side while there is an unknown world of jazz and funk.
Top notch Italian groove and funk-based music. If Stevie Wonder or Jamiroquai were Italian, it would sound like this!!
The capability of a perfect blend of intense Italian melodic music lines together with the energy of the American funk is at the backbone of Sonamo'.
The band proposes original music where one can listen to possible to the different background of each band member
As a matter of fact, Sonamo’ performs tunes that have roots in the deepest Italian tradition with African, Hispanic and Middle Eastern influence, since the Italian territory has been colonized by many different cultures throughout the history. Engaging, exciting and easy to listen, and FUNKY AS HELL. Come get some!
