Respect | Samskara

IRIE™ Magazine | RESPECT - Samskara



Born in the northern suburbs of Paris, the group SAMSKARA has only one goal, to take you on a musical journey, one full of good vibes, mixing Ska, Dub and even Rock. Samskara finds its roots in their favorite music genre; Reggae-Roots. Their brass sections has a sound that is ‘peplumèsques’ or sometimes Balkan or oriental. That sound is accompanied by an eclectic guitar belting out skank and distortion as a flow of lyrics can be felt by the explosive M-Syla. It’s on stage that you have to see Samskara, as its energy is infectious!

From 2013 and 2018, Samskara has shared the stage with big names like, Israel Vibration & The Roots Radics, Gladiators, Jah Mason, Lutan Fyah, MoKalamity, SkarraMucci, Protoje & The Indiggnation, Danaki, Pierpoljak, Perfect Giddimani, Tryo, Mister Gang, Emji, Inna Modja, Sly Johnson, and Rocé to name a few.

In 2014, Samskara released their first self-production (Samsk’Asso prod.), ‘Getting Au Vert’.

Flashforward to October 2019 and Samskara is back with a highly-anticipated release.
