Samira's Blues got a beautiful feature and review by MusicMap.

Magnetising North African spirituals and original songs in Arabic, Tamazight and French.
Samira's Blues brings you a blend of magnetising spirituals en originals by Samira Dainan, with Arabic, Berber and African roots. Samira follows the nomadic trail of her ancestors, by living in Morocco's desert, attending ceremonies in the Atlas Mountains and the Sous and joining Gnaoua lilas in Essaouira. Back in Amsterdam she writes and composes songs for her band, together with guitarist Bas Gaakeer.
