Odyssey is a community of Music, Arts, and Film, bringing to you “Peace & Love Karachi” a one-of-a-kind live music event. Featuring Santi and Tugce, Berlin-based musicians who will be bringing their eclectic music style merged with an exciting lineup of local artists like Aziz Kazi, Haider Uppal, and Rawblotter.
Santi (from Asunción, Paraguay) and Tugce (from Istanbul, Turkey) left their homes to follow their dreams of music and have been road companions and musical partners for more than a decade. 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. Rooted in the richness of diverse cultural and musical traditions, and motivated by a constant pulse for open-minded inquiry and innovation, Santi & Tugce reclaim the power of music to express something essential about the human experience. To this date, they have performed in many major electronic and world music festivals, and concert halls in more than 20 countries throughout Europe, Asia, and North, and South America and received critical acclaim worldwide. These days Santi & Tugce are working on their fourth full-length album that once again invites listeners to glance back, gaze forward, and remember always to fully embody the here and now.
