Marina Satti - a star in Greece and one of the most interesting young artists in Europe! She has the reputation of having “the voice of a Greek goddess and the magic of an oriental mythical figure”. In her music she is always innovative and combines elements from traditional Greek music, the Balkans and the Middle East, mixes traditional sounds with pop, electro, hip-hop, Balkan and Arabic vibes. Musically provocative, catchy and a joy in every way - an artist with a clear vision and a rebellious urge to defend herself against simplicity while at the same time embodying all the different and contradicting experiences that human life matters in changing cultural and political times.
With her single "Mantissa", which was composed, arranged and produced by her, Marina Satti first attracted worldwide attention in 2017. The song has almost 50 million views on YouTube today and topped the charts in Greece after its release. As a result, she was named one of the ten most interesting YouTube acts of the year. A year later she appeared in the company of Fonέs at the presentation of the Champions of the Earth Awards of the United Nations.
With “PALI” (2021) Marina Satti is now releasing her first single from her upcoming album. A song that speaks of the forms of commitment, the wavering between love and fear, the never-ending game of emotions. Inspired by influences from Greek culture and modern music production, "PALI" is a pop hymn that catches the ear - and stays. The music video conveys a strong and direct message. With a series of symbolic scenes and precise camera positions, it speaks the role of Women in Greek society and conveys a positive message to empower women, creating an honest portrait of a Greek village with its traditions, its own and special culture, which we also want to celebrate.
Born in Athens as the daughter of a Sudanese father and a Cretan mother, Marina Satti grew up in Heraklion on the Greek island of Crete. The culturally diverse environment had a significant impact on her musical development as well as on the multicultural nature of her artistic career. After graduating in classical piano and music theory, she received a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music and graduated in 2011 with a major in Contemporary Writing & Production.
In 2016 she founded "Fonέs", a Greek polyphonic women's group that she accompanies on her live shows. One year later, "Chórεs" was founded, a women's choir consisting of 50 women of all ages.
