Samito

Montréal, Québec

Samito is a Mozambican-Canadian artist who explores the relationship between acoustic and electronic sounds, the old and the new, with highly rhythmic compositions and lyrics inspired from his childhood, where nostalgia meets political crises. ”Xico-Xico”, his debut album, due for 2015, was produced by Ivan Duran, and will feature songs in Portuguese, French, English, and Chitswa (one of Mozambique’s dialects). In this album, Samito seeks to get the definition of world music, and the way it is represented out of its comfort zone.
