RESPECT | Samora - Higher Meditation 1

If you don’t know Samora, you’re missing out. This girl is on fire and gives her audience the best time…

Samora is a fresh, real, raw, energetic, and exciting Reggae-Pop-singer, an Afrobeat-queen, and a true Dancehall-diva. Based in Switzerland but originally from Suriname and the Netherlands, she has evolved into an internationally known and recognized up-to-date artist. Releases such as “Please Be Mine” and “What You Came For” with Jamaican superstars Turbulence and Lutan Fyah is proof enough…

Her music always has this special kind of Afro-Caribbean flavor, but with her open mindset, she appeals to a broad audience as well. She is mixing all kinds of Pop styles with Reggae-related music, be it Afrobeat, Afropop, Modern Dancehall, or Reggae itself. Her rooted and down-to-earth musical profile, combined with an open and free approach toward music and life, makes Samora an outstanding artist with a strong personality. She has emerged as a very attractive performer, whether on records or live shows. Wherever she stands on a stage, people are impressed by her energy, power, and passion for what she does. That’s why both fans and the media are becoming more aware of her talent and appreciating her outstanding versability. Samora never disappoints her audience, and she has never given up her passion and motivation for music. She’s a persistent, highly focused, and hard-working artist: After her first international tour in 2018, her debut album released in 2019 in Amsterdam’s legendary club “Paradiso,” and two singles in the same year, she dropped six more singles in 2020 and had seven singles and 5 video releases in 2021, working with a Swiss/French production team, all well received by fans and the media. In 2022 she will do a major album release – you’re going to be surprised and amazed by her next steps.

Born in 1991 in Paramaribo, Suriname, Samora came into contact with music very early and fell in love with the different sounds and styles, from Gospel to Reggae. Even as a little girl, she wanted to become a singer. When she moved to the Netherlands at the age of 14, she was able to realize her dream and turn to a career in the music business. Between 2012 and 2014, she attended the Nederlandse Pop Academie in Utrecht, founded her band, and participated in music competitions, some of which she won. After her first two singles, “Amazing” and “My Turn,” in 2015, she turned more and more to Reggae-related music, which was reflected in the 2016 insider tip “Momma Said.” Further singles and the first bigger shows in the Netherlands followed until 2018 when she accepted an invitation from the band Open Season to be part of the “Female Reggae Voices” tour. Together with the Swiss Reggae band, she released the tune “Me Na Fallin.”

In spring 2019, her debut album “Moengo” was released, a homage to the place where her parents first met. And between 2019 and 2021, Samora released a huge number of other singles such as “Keep My Fire Lit,” “Free Up,” “What You Came For,” and “Home Again.” In 2020 and 2021, Samora intensified her bond with Switzerland and worked with her Swiss production team on her next steps and releases.

She consistently pursues her path of expanding her fanbase through commitment, up-to-date releases, and convincing live shows, such as at the renowned “Reggaelake Festival” in Amsterdam 2019 and several memorable gigs all over Europe. Her consistency attracted international music magazines and platforms to write about her releases, too. For example, she was on the front cover of the global renowned Reggae and Dancehall magazine Irie Magazine in the summer of 2020. But many other media are publishing her releases and interviews and sharing her music on their platforms.

Let her inspire you, too.
