Akylla brings together the strengths and genius of musicians Sherry St. Germain and Sara Saratonin for a live electronic music movement that carries a lifetime of collaborations and studio work. Their style was shaped in a ice cave near the north pole and their quality is secured by a considerable catalog of original words and music. SteveAoki, Excision, Snails, and Terravita are only some of their collaborators and Tomorrowland (Belgium), Shambhala (Canada), Burning Man (USA), and Envision (Costa Rica) are only some of the stages they’ve hit to date.
