An emblematic artist of the Palestinian underground scene, SAMA’ (previously named Skywalker) is the first Palestinian DJ and electronic music producer.
She started mixing in 2006 in parties around Ramallah, Palestine, and started producing her own music and expanding her interest in synthesis in 2010, with a focus on Electronic Music, more specifically Techno, House, and other deeper sub-genres.
Her sound: a powerful punchy techno, dry and musical all at once, , with a very unique twist of her own
In 2011, she moved to the UK to acquire a Bachelor of Science in Audio Engineering and Music Production from S.A.E. London, further improving her technical skills. Soon after, she released two albums as Skywalker, " Life's Pace " a debut EP with Itchycoo Records, and " Quantum Morphosis ", a self-released independent triptych (available on itunes and all major platforms).
She then started her career in Cairo in 2013 as an Audio Engineer, Music Producer, Audio Trainer, and Sound Designer for films.
In 2016, Sama partnered with Eka3 to start a publishing agency of its first kind called Awyav, which represents independent artists from all over the arab world.
In 2017, as she was about to settle in Paris, SAMA’ decided to change her artist name from Skywalker to SAMA’ her first name, meaning Sky in Arabic.
Since April 2017, as she was selected as a Laureate by the French Institute, SAMA’ is attending a six months residency at the International City of Arts in Paris, during which she will work on her next album and develop a new live show.
