Sanni Est

Sanni Est

Sanni Est is a singer, performer and transmedia artist based in Berlin who challenges notions of knowledge, reason, normativity and beauty with her voice and presence. Classically trained in Brazil as a singer and semiotician, Sanni has long since fucked with an education grounded in white, heteropatriarchal, christian and colonial values. She eludes enlightenment with Photophobia, embracing the fecundity of darkness. Her multilayered artworks entangle etymological research with autobiography to question notions of humanity and unravel eurocentric gender-binary patterns. Refusing to restrain her voice, with her music, Sanni seeks to heighten vulnerability, combining vulnerable, exploratory vocal techniques with experimental synthesizers and Afro-Brazilian ritualistic drums. Her performances make spaces of empowerment.
