The story behind the budding career of Samira's Blues - a Dutch/Moroccan project as told by reporter Bram Posthumus. Taking you on a journey from the Dutch capital of Amsterdam all the way to the very edge of the Sahara desert in Morocco. "From their performance you surely wouldn't say that this is a musical group in the early stages of it's career. Yet it is true, Samira's Blues only started two years ago, early 2018. Their story is one of shared musical passions and has only just begun." Enjoy the broadcast on MTIA!
