Montreal-based, Mozambican singer-songwriter and producer Samito is on a mission to “bring groove into a new age, an age where new afro aesthetics drive the music” with his debut album Xico-xico. Samito grew up in Maputo and Cape Town, where he was heavily influenced by the South African-bred shangaan disco style. He recently produced six tracks on Congolese-Canadian singer Pierre Kwenders‘ Juno Awards-nominated album Le Dernier Empereur Bantou, all of which showcase Samito’s sonic blend of crisp electronic production and catchy lyrics sung in French, English and Portuguese. With his lead track “Tiku La Hina,” Samito pairs swift, tempo-shifting beatwork with sliced-up vocal samples. - Damola Durosomo


Avec Wesli et Pierre Kwenders, Samito fait partie de ces artistes montréalais dont on ne cesse de vanter le potentiel international. Plusieurs concerts estivaux et un album à paraître cet automne devraient suffire à nous en convaincre. - Alain Brunet


Une découverte montréalaise majeure
Fruit de la mixité sonore entre musique de Mozambique et sons électroniques, l’artiste Samito est un pur produit de la métropole - Yves Bernard


Samito est un chanteur, compositeur et musicien né en Mozambique et installé au Canada depuis 2005. 10 années de travail acharné lui ont permis d’obtenir le titre de révélation Radio-Canada 2015-2016. J’ai eu le plaisir de rencontrer cet artiste aux multiples talents dans le cadre de la 29 ième édition du Festival Nuits d’Afrique. - Nicoleta Stoodley
