In this special playlist for Rhythm Passports, Santi & Tuğçe curated a selection of essential tracks from around the world, which reflect the wide palette of influences that inspires their own musical world.
(Santi & Tuğçe)
Santi (from Paraguay) and Tuğçe (from Turkey) left their homes to follow their dreams of music and have been road companions and musical partners for more than a decade. Currently based in Berlin after many years of living in the US where they first met, they each bring a vibrant mosaic of influences and ideas from all over the world: soulful melodies, colorful instrumentation, dreamy harmonies, and surgically engineered dance-floor beats, informed by years of Santi’s training in music composition and computer science along with Tuğçe’s studies in jazz vocals and creative writing.
The tales that Santi & Tuğçe tell are fluid and ever-changing, filled with musical and literary creativity, revealing a breathtaking stylistic synthesis and reminding us of our timeless essence. To this date, they have released critically acclaimed albums and performed in major electronic and world music festivals, clubs, theaters, and concert halls throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America.
