What is Satori, you say?
Music created by this artist, is exactly what his name represents – Enlightenment and Energy.
EXIT, one of the best worldwide festivals, together with National platform “Serbia Creates” are bringing one of the world’s leading producers from Amsterdam – Satori on Expo 2020 Dubai. Satori feat. Amira Medunjanin, Milica Majstorović, Esma Redžepova (post mortem) and others will perform on Expo Jubilee Stage on January 14 at 9:15PM GST.
In a collaboration with the most prominent musicians in the field of traditional music from Serbia and the Balkans, Satori will tell an interesting story of the fascinating heritage of the Neolithic Vinča culture and present it through specific audio, visual and artistic form.
Although he was born and lives in the Netherlands, Satori’s real name is Djordje Petrović, which clearly reflects his father’s origin from Serbia, while his mother is from South Africa.
“I’m really proud that I was asked to perform at the World Exhibition in Dubai and in an artistic way ‘represent’ Serbia, the country of my roots. Although I am releasing a new album soon, I am coming to Dubai with a completely different project. I will present music inspired by Vinča culture and sounds of Serbia and the Balkans. The concert at the Expo, the most prestigious festival of world achievements, is a great honor for me and fantastic way to start 2022”, Satori said when he announced his performance at EXPO Dubai 2020.
Satori performance is inspired by the motives of the heritage of Vinča culture, which changed the way humans lived and sparked many of the world’s most ground-breaking ideas – first cities, brought explosion of social, technical and economic innovation, creativity, trade and peaceful coexistence – that changed the direction of all of humanity.
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.
Satori’s sound is more than just a switch on a soundboard; he is the man behind the instrument, creating melodies on the piano, kora, kalimba, and guitar in combination with a deeper form of electronic music. Listen as you take on new dimensions of his musical world, where movement, dreaming and creativity are endless.
