Elegant, stylish, and convincing
A charismatic singer and a great band are ready to deliver musical experiences of a very special kind.
Soulful interpretations of jazz standards, swaying Brazilian bossa nova, original hits, and a number of French surprises take the audience on a journey that only ends when the very last note rings out.
The subtle repertoire of familiar and unfamiliar tunes, which is imbued with a rarely seen linguistic virtuosity and musicality, unites genres, languages, and styles, giving the music a life of its own.
With intimacy and presence, Sam (Samara Bahrami) and her Soulmates mesmerize audiences from the first moment, leaving them sensually intoxicated. The concerts are marked by experienced ensemble playing and musicality. The stage becomes an engaging playground where world-class musicians manage to create a very special atmosphere that can best be described as magical.
" ... a well-performing group that masters the alternating styles." Jørgen Nielsen, critic.
"Magic, charisma, humor, and great music!"
