The whole band is completely in sync, as tight as the lid on an unopened jam jar. And jam they do! It is rare to hear a band so unified and together, but I have always felt that the greatest funk bands don’t feel so much like a band but more as one incredibly talented creature. I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking octopus…” - Charles Connolly

Sonamó is a band that breaks the mold, leading a revolutionary musical movement that merges Italian melodies with funk, Latin rhythms, and world music influences. Their high-energy sound is a vibrant mix of diverse traditions, captivating audiences and lighting up stages across the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

The band first established its roots with the release of an EP that experimented with rock, jazz, Latin, and funk elements, setting the tone for a journey that would evolve into something truly unique. This journey reached a new level with the release of "I Walk Through," a song that speaks to transition and growth. It reflects on moments where joy and pain coexist and embraces the future with optimism, confident that the best is yet to come.

"Moving to San Francisco from Italy made me realize that dreams can come true, and that applies to every aspect of life if you put your heart into it," says Giuseppe Pinto, Sonamó's charismatic frontman. "Focus on making choices for love, rather than fear."

Pinto's journey of finding home and freedom in a new country was translated into the ethos of Sonamó, shaped by meeting creative guitarist Trent Berry. Trent describes his experience with Sonamó as "like discovering a lost cousin, almost like a parallel evolution," highlighting the band's deep connection and chemistry.

Sonamó is now synonymous with high-octane parties where influences from afro-beat, traditional folk, and Brazilian rhythms collide. Their shows are filled with infectious energy, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive, with thousands of fans embracing their unique sound.

Looking ahead, Sonamó is set to release their full album in 2025, a collection of music that promises to capture their revolutionary spirit and further their mission to unite people through the universal language of music. If you haven't experienced the magic of Sonamó yet, you're in for a treat. Their music transcends boundaries, inviting everyone to join in the celebration of life and sound.
