Hello all, and welcome to Santuri’s ✨NEW✨ website!

So much has happened in the last 18 months that we felt the need to refresh how people can view and interact with us. We’ll be adding content from the old site in due course.

We hope you like it! For any comments or queries please drop us a note at info @ santuri. org

















Back in March 2022 we rocked Shelter club in Westlands to its foundations with a stellar line up of live electronic acts.  We’re proud to present the first performance from that night, featuring Manthmatics / Piozone, and Sam Mbugua on keys.
Dive in and stay tuned for more performances!

Here are some photos:
