Samsaya – Stereotype video:
Samsaya, who was born in India and raised in Norway, mixes pop, dance, hip-hop, funk, and soul with traditional Indian sounds. Her club-ready tunes are influenced by everyone from Mary J. Blige, TLC and OutKast to renowned Indian singer Asha Bhosle. “Stereotype” is the first single from her forthcoming album Bombay Calling – to be released next year on BMG.
Samsaya, whose name means “doubt” in Hindi, has been writing lyrics and rhymes since childhood. “At 12, I heard Dinah Washington’s ‘I’m Mad About the Boy’ and upon hearing that trumpet-type voice, something happened to me,” recalls the singer. “Religious lyrics and traditional music didn’t touch me. This moved me.”
Samsaya will make her U.S live debut in early 2014.
