Animo is a Contemporary Classical flute and piano duo that perform soulful timeless music

Animo = spirit, mind, emotion, intent, feelings

Sarah and Yanna launched Animo in Gloucester Blackfriars in October 2019. Since October 2019, we have created the most ambitious five-year 'new music project' commissioning composers worldwide to write music specifically for us. 

Animo are all about performing soulful music with a myriad influences which means that since June 2020 Animo is officially 'Declassified'. Our performance style is inclusive, open, fun and laid back. We thrive in creating a connection with our audiences.

During the pandemic, Animo went to work, started new projects, performed a weekly 'Tuesday live at 12:45' live-stream from our home studio, recorded our 2nd album 'ANIMO two' from which the first releases are due in June 2021, opened our online merch shop at Bandcamp, recorded our new music video and short film at St George's Bristol, and we are now in the final stages of our composition commissions. 

Our first live performance on July 15th became a livestream due to Covid restrictions and it was the restart of our post-lockdown calendar. 

We are proud to have been chosen for a residency and to take part in the Festival of New at Snape Maltings in September 2021. This is the beginning of a new collaboration with Supriya Nagarajan.

ANIMO are part of KORES Trio and FOUR all of which have the same ethos and ideals: of playing and listening to music without barriers or labels.

ANIMO can tailor music to suit all audiences and ages. For samples of programmes and our repertoire, please have a look at the Performance webpage
