Samito is a Montréal-based, Moçambican singer-songwriter and producer whose music juxtaposes Afro and electronica. The result is a high-energy melt of fast beats and heavily processed bass sounds inspired by shangaan beats of the 80's. His hit record "Tiku La Hina" and the subsequent "Cem Cem” (feat. Mabika & Muneshine) have propelled him into major music festivals such as SXSW, Osheaga, Reeperbahn Festival and the Montréal Jazz Festival. Samito's producer credits and collaborations include Philippe Cohen–Solal, Daniel Haaksman, Dakat, Muneshine, Poirier, Philippe Brault, Pierre Kwenders, amongst others. On Man Recordings, Samito released “I Saw You” ft. Mabika.
His first solo album "Samito" (Costume Records) was awarded with the 2017 Félix Award for World Music Album Of The Year at Québec’s Gala De L’adisq in Canada.
