Samito - singer, songwriter, music producer from Montréal
Samito is a Mozambican-Canadian singer-songwriter, music producer and musician based in Montreal whose music blends acoustica and electronica with African and world music sounds to create a distinct music style in part inspired by his upbringing in Maputo, Mozambique. He plays guitar and keyboards. On May 19, 2015, Radio Canada announced Samito as the 2015-2016 Revelation for the World Music category. Samito, his eponymous debut album, was released on May 27, 2016. Samito sings in Portuguese, English, French and Tswa.
With Wesli and Pierre Kwenders, Samito is one of those Montreal artists whose international potential is constantly praised. Several summer concerts and an album to be released this fall should be enough to convince us of this
Samito does not hesitate to confuse the tracks by making African melodies and songs become entangled on rhythms with digital textures (...) which fits perfectly into the structure of its sound structure
Tiku La Hina was one of our favorite songs from last year. The track (…) sees Samito dealing with and embracing a shifting identity caused by his move form Maputo to North America
