What is Satori, you say? Music created by this artist, is exactly what his name represents- -- Enlightenment and Energy. We are born in a chaotic age, all looking for our own space. A space that exists beyond ideas of what?s right and what?s wrong. A space where we can surrender, and find ourselves. Satori helps us find our way. Satori is inspired to capture electronic world music, where he combines endless blends of seductive trance and mind-altering earthy tones. It is not defined by any-one genre. Satori is here to satisfy any meditative music-lover by provoking a spiritual journey through his infinite sound-garden. Listen as you take on new dimensions of his musical world, where movement, dreaming and creativity are endless. Let the sound live in your heart, harvesting every last memory of dance and rhythm. Satori?s sound is more than just a switch on a soundboard; he is the man behind the instrument, creating melodies from the piano, kora, kalimba, and guitar in combination with a deeper form of electronic music.
Half Belgian and half Dutch, Ramona spent her youth bouncing between Antwerp and Amsterdam throughout the early 90s. Growing up on Belgian techno and the Dutch love of house music instilled in her an early appreciation for contrast and balance between these two genres of music.
Ramona’s sound weaves together a tapestry of melodies, textures and beats, reflecting two decades of extensive world travel. Always conscious of the energy of her audience, her sensitivity stems from a love of dancing, and results in an emotive, sensual style that exudes a rich array of feeling. It is Ramona’s way of giving back and getting back to that vital place we all go when the music feels right.
Currently based in San Francisco, Ramona has been playing music for the past 6 years, touring coast to coast at clubs and festivals, and has recently begun playing in South America and Europe as well.
She has played alongside such great acts as Viken Armen, Oceanvs Orientalis, Thugfucker, Oona Dahl, M,Rux, Powel, Jacob Groening, Monolink, Satori, Lum, Martha Van Straaten and also has done several theater tours with Boombox.
Festival appearances include Nomade Chile, Voodoohop Brazil, Lightning in a Bottle, Oregon Eclipse and many years playing at Burning man music camps.
