Blu Samu invites Shaka Shams
From Portugal to Brussels, passing through Antwerp, Blu Samu (23) already lived several lives. Somewhere in between poet and urban samurai, Blu Samu tells her story through an intuitive mix of hip hop and soul, using her hoarse voice to express her love of words. She moved in with her friends from Le 77 in Brussels, and in them -and Zwangere Guy- she found a real crew, a family; resulting in quickly becoming the new sensation of Belgian hip hop. She confirmed her status by winning the Red Bull Elektropedia award for best upcoming urban artists and performing at massive festivals such as Dour and Pukkelpop. When she’s not performing in Belgium, Blu Samu plays one gig after the other all over Europe representing Brussels with her DJ Loumana by her side.
Blu Samu INVITES: Shaka Shams
Growing up in Belgium, traveling back and forth to the UKwith his family, having a solid sense of his South African roots, Shaka Shams has always felt like a lone wolf. This uprooting prompted him to turn to music at already a very young age. Shaka's inspiration comes from many places; hip hop, grime, reggae, house ... He approaches music in his own way, puzzling the different pieces together to find the perfect balance. Add his deep, recognisable voice and you have Shaka's musical universe. One to watch.
