Sofia Kourtesis

Cult figure Sarita Colonia, Peruvian patron of the poor and DIY saint of the people, adorns all of Sofia Kourtesis’ releases. Her music summons a similar spirit of communality: colourful, energetic, warm. Born in Peru and based in Berlin, the DJ and producer creates collage-style soundscapes using field recordings, film samples, personal fragments, and plundering her deep love for electronic and house music: a bold sound built for the dancefloor, but built out of many different places. After her self-titled 2019 debut EP proved to be something of a cult hit, her subsequent EPs including last year’s Fresia Magdalena have gone from strength to strength: cinematic, miraculous, and full of heart.

Country: Peru
