This is what Sanni says about Sanni:

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, Sanni’s music combines unusual, exploratory vocal techniques with experimental synthesizers and Afro-Brazilian ritualistic drums. Her performances make spaces of empowerment.
