San Ima – which stands for “the Saint of Now” – is an electronic music project founded in Berlin, with Brazilian and Mediterranean roots.

We play Worldtronic – a musical meltdown of electronic music, alternative pop and world beats.

Our music ventures between “cultures” and “homes”– wherever our hearts are.
.....................................................................................................................................................................
San Ima was born in 2011, when I, Anaís Furtado, first met the musicologist Alejandro Pardo. At that time I was djing electronic music around the world and my singing was kept secretly in my computer. I decided to take a step further and reveal it to him, even though this songs were full of intimacy and melancholy. Alejandro was full of ideas, gave me wings and we got along right away.

We have grown up, joined by Saxophon player and singer Ares Gratal and also by percussionist Antonio Piñera, who cooperates on our project.

In 2012 our single “Nuvens” was chosen to be part of the “SoundGroundBerlin” compilation. Two years later, in 2014, we released our first EP “Saudadich”, totally independent, in collaboration with drummer Andrea Zuliani and sound designer and visual artist VanTa, who had already produced our music video for “Nuvens”.

We performed at Gretchen, Fusion Festival, Kater Holzig, Karneval der Kulturen, AT.Tension Festival and were finalists of the Creole World Music Contest in Werkstatt der Kulturen. We travelled with our music to Spain, India, Brazil and throughout our home base Germany. We had the pleasure to open up the concert of Céu (Brazilian grammy-winner) at Binuu, in Berlin.

We like to experiment and cooperate with different artists, in an interdisciplinary way, around the globe. Some of this experiment will be presented in our new EP, currently cooking, which will be released in 2019.
