BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1991 in Paramaribo, Suriname, Samora came into contact with music at a very early age 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 turned to a career in the music business. Between 2012 and 2014 she attended the Nederlandse Pop Academie in Utrecht, founded her own band, and participated in music competitions, some of which she won. With her single “Momma Said” (2016) she turned to Reggae-related music. Further singles and first bigger shows in the Netherlands followed and in 2018 she participated in the “Female Reggae Voices” tour in Switzerland. Singles like “Me Na Fallin” (2018) and her debut album “Moengo” (2019) – a homage to the place where her parents first met – followed. Between 2019 and 2022, Samora released a huge number of singles such as “Keep My Fire Lit”, “Free Up”, “What You Came For” feat. Lutan Fyah, “Home Again” feat. Brother Culture, “Jah Inna Mi Life”, “Fake” and of course her phenomenal album “Chameleon” (2022), which was produced by the team of Res Staudenmann and Kiro MusicMaker, and which received excellent reviews.

 

She consistently pursues her path of expanding her fanbase trough commitment, up to date releases and convincing live shows at renowned festivals like “Reggaelake Festival” “Rototom Sunsplash” or “Summerjam”. Her consistency attracted international music magazines and platforms to write about her releases. And after her album being considered for Grammy nomination in 2022, she crowned her career winning the Caribbean Music Award for “Best New Artist Reggae” 2023 in New York.
