BIOGRAPHY...THE STORY SO FAR...

THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND TRE-CONNECT IS SOUTHEAST LONDON BASED ARTIST + SINGER/SONGWRITER

SANTA MWANSHYA MUTANUKA - SANTINO


BORN IN LONDON WITH ROOTS ORIGINATING IN ZAMBIA SANTA HAS ALWAYS HAD A DEEP PASSION FOR MUSIC THROUGH HIS MOTHER AND FATHER AS A CHILD, VERY MUCH LIKE THE SOUL ENTERTAINERS HE GREW UP LISTENING TO SUCH AS DONNY HATHAWAY, MARVIN GAYE, JAMES BROWN, ANDRAE CROUCH, STEVIE WONDER, THE WINANS, MICHAEL JACKSON, EARTH WIND AND FIRE THE LIST GOES ON.....

GRADUATING FROM THE BRIT SCHOOL, THE UK's ONLY GOVERNMENT FUNDED ARTS COLLEGE HE WOULD ESTABLISH HIMSELF AS A DANCER TEACHING AND PERFORMING WITH A DANCE COMPANY LED BY THEO LOWE CALLED XCLUSIVE PERFORMERS. DURING THE EARLY YEARS HE WAS EXPOSED TO THE REALM OF REALITY T.V. AT THE AGE OF 16 THROUGH A DANCE COMPETITION ON SKY CHANNEL 'TROUBLE' CALLED 'BUMP AND GRIND' BACK IN 2004. THERE HIS PATH WOULD LEAD HIM TO TONY ADIGUN SANTINO WOULD THEN COME UNDER THE AVANT GARDE DANCE COMPANY VISION WHICH GAVE HIM THE CREATIVE DRIVE AND PUSH HE NEEDED TO PURSUE A CAREER IN THE ARTS.

LATER HE CONTINUED THE PURSUIT IN DISCOVERING HIS OWN VOICE AS A SOLO ARTIST THROUGH PICKING UP THE GUITAR PRACTICING AND INDEPENDENTLY WRITING SONGS, RECORDING AND RELEASING MUSIC.

ALL THE WHILE REDISCOVERING HIS CREATIVE EYE FOR FILM AND DIGITAL MEDIA THUS TRE-CONNECT BEING BORN. TRE-CONNECT IS THE THREAD THAT ENCOMPASSES ALL HE DOES AS HE CONTINUES TO GROW AND WORK WITH MORE ARTISTS FOR FUTURE PROJECTS WITH NO SIGNS OF SLOWING DOWN.

OVER THE YEARS HE HAS COLLABORATED AND WORKED WITH SOME OF THE UK's MOST PROLIFIC CREATIVE MINDS + MUSICIANS THAT CONTINUE TO SHAPE AND INSPIRE HIM TO BE THE ARTIST HE IS TODAY:
