Seductively elegant, stylish, and strong
A singer with massive charisma and a great band is ready to deliver a musical experience of a very special kind.
Soulful interpretations of jazz standards, rocking Brazilian bossa novas, original hits, and a handful of French surprises take the audience on a journey that only ends when the very last note has rung out.
With intimacy and presence, Sam (Samara Bahrami) and her Soulmates enchant audiences from the first moment. The concerts are characterized by experienced interplay and musicality, and the stage becomes an engaging playground where world-class musicians manage to create a magical atmosphere.
In a subtle repertoire of known and unknown tunes, imbued with linguistic virtuosity and musicality, genres, languages , and styles are united. The unpretentious and pleasant atmosphere among the band members effortlessly goes beyond the stage and also provides a space for stories about life and the band. The sound is at times angelic and romantic, other times powerful and insistent, but always stylish and with the right intentions.
Magic, charisma, humor, and great music!

... a well-playing group that masters the changing styles.
