Two years ago, this Surinamese-Dutch female reggae singer that goes by the name Samora Souprayen front lady of the band “Samora”, hit the reggae scene and their live energetic performances across the Europe left an impression to the audience. Samora’s reggae sound is highly influenced with modern soul, funk and pop.
After her debut album “Moengo” (album name by a town in Suriname), and two singles “Little Green Bag” and “Keep My Fire Lit” in 2019, Samora started 2020 with a single “Free Up“, a song about growing wiser and becoming a better version of yourself by letting go of old routines which are holding you back.
”"With her tight live band Samora blows her public away and conquers stages and festivals in the Netherlands and abroad."
“Free up” was written on a riddim by Res Staudenmann. The original version of the beat however was written by Thomas Ola for Swiss singer Irina Mossi. Because this song was never released in this version Res Staudenmann decided to develop the instrumental, to record and mix it and to release a Riddim Selection called “Female Reggae Voices” on this instrumental, which gives several female Reggae artists a possibility to come together on one album, to be heard and seen, to gain more recognition and to reach a wider audience. “Female Reggae Voices” will be released in summer 2020.
