SARI

Since the age of 6 Sari has been playing with music, starting first with piano. In her teen years she developed in music theory and started singing at the German school choir in Porto, Portugal as a soprano. She performed often as a soloist interpreting Edit Piaf, Marlene Dietrich and jazz standards. Her dream was to become a professional soprano singer, but a problem in her throat made it impossible for her to follow her dream.  She went on to study architecture in Berlin, Germany.

In Berlin 2005 she bought a guitar and started to practice. She then rediscovered her voice on a different pitch and started singing again in different genres.

On her fist solo backpacking adventure to Italy, she took the guitar and started busking for fun. This experience was so powerful that she returned to Berlin and quit her part-time job. After graduating and working as an Architect for 3 years Sari decided to fully dedicate herself to music, first solo and then as a part of the duo CocoPilots.
