About Sonamó

If a Ferrari and Stevie Wonder had a lovechild, they would name it Sonamó. 

With a dynamic, passionate blend of Italian melodic lines shot through with hefty doses of funk and acid jazz, Sonamó makes a both danceable yet introspective, at once familiar yet exotic, intense yet energetic, romantic and yet somehow carefree. One of the strongest characteristics of Sonamó is their high energy that’s well expressed in their memorable live performances. 

The San Francisco band, whose roots are spread all over the world, releases their first EP Album in August 2018. Spacing from the sensual mood of Maybe You Know to the upbeat tempo of More, the EP Album Another Story merges unexpected undertones and essential beats into music that clearly expresses the nature of the band. 

It started when Giuseppe Pinto moved to San Francisco in 2010. As a passionate musician from Italy, Pinto searched for inspiration in his new city by exploring its eclectic scene and open-mindedness. As Pinto mentioned: “[...] my experience in the United States completely changed me. I had to reconsider all my values and understand that there are many ways of doing things and seeing things. That’s what I call the American miracle: a huge diversity that brings the best part of all of us”. 
Those feelings of freedom and love in Pinto’s journey came to life with Sonamó after the meeting with creative guitarist Trent Berry who says: ”[...] as a kid growing up in the midwest it was like discovering a lost cousin almost like a parallel evolution, if American funk is like Nascar then Italian funk is like Formula 1”. 

The name Sonamó is inspired by an album of Pino Daniele (E Sona Mo’) that literally means “and play now”, It is sometimes used among musicians in Southern Italian as a slang term meaning, “show me what you got!” and boy, do they ever!

If Jamiroquai and Stevie Wonder were Italians, they would sound like Sonamó.

Artist Bio It all started when Sonamó’s founder Giuseppe Pinto moved to San Francisco in 2012. As a passionate musician from Italy, Pinto searched for inspiration in his new city by exploring its eclectic scene. As Pinto mentioned: “[...] my experience in the United States changed me and my life perspective completely. I had to reconsider all my values and understand that there are many ways of doing things. That’s what I call the American miracle: a huge diversity that brings the best part of all of us”. His journey led him to realize that his take on Italian music, with its unknown undertones of world jazz and funk, was very much missing in the American music scene.
