Groove Pioneers of Italian Funk and Beyond
Sonamó is a band like no other, leading the charge in a revolutionary musical movement that fuses Italian melodies with funk, Latin rhythms, and world music influences. Their dynamic sound is a high-energy amalgamation of diverse traditions, igniting stages and hearts across the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
With the release of their first EP, the band laid down their roots infused with rock, jazz, Latin, and funk. This early experimentation laid the foundation for a musical journey that would later mature into something truly exceptional.
Fast forward to now…it’s with the release of "I Walk Through," a song about transitioning into a new phase, that the sound of the band reaches its maturity. In this song, Sonamó takes a moment to remember where joy and pain co-existed and embrace the unknown with optimistic lenses, believing the best is yet to come.
“Moving to San Francisco from Italy made me realize that dreams come true and that does not apply only to music but to every aspect of life if you put your heart and soul into it. Focus on making choices for love, rather than fear.”, says Giuseppe Pinto, the band's charismatic frontman.
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 and seeing things. That’s what I call the American miracle: a huge diversity that brings the best in all of us”.
Finally able to feel at home, the freedom and love in Pinto’s journey were translated into Sonamó after meeting with creative guitarist Trent Berry who says: ”[...] as a kid growing up in the Midwest, creating music with Sonamó was like discovering a lost cousin, almost like a parallel evolution”.
Pioneers of "Italian" funk, Sonamó's shows are high-octane parties where influences from afro-beat, traditional folk, and Brazilian rhythms collide. This infectious hybrid has captured the hearts of thousands and garnered recognition from the Italian government for modernizing and evolving Italian music.
