We are so tickled pink to introduce SAMSARA XOXO our newest and youngest R&B /POP/SOUL emerging Artist!
Samsara XOXO was born Samsara Gamble with a song in her heart ! When she was just a baby she would already harmonize in her little crib and experiment with her voice just a bit more than the usual baby babbling.
Samsara enjoys performing with her school band and recently performed at the LILA PALOOZA annual event!
Samsara also sang in chorus/choir with the Shakespeare Children’s Choir on M83‘s “HurryUp, We’re Dreaming ” GRAMMY Nominated Best New Alternative album in 2012.
Her father, Simply Johan R&B singer & musician introduced her to Old-school R&B/soul & Funk music at an early age and she naturally picked up pop music in her blood.
Samsara started writing her own lyrics and songs at age 6 in French and English and has not stopped since. She loves to experiment with her voice and singing is her passion. She also enjoys making her own videos and iMovies for her YouTube friends and creating her own beats. Samsara is currently always singing, training, learning new vocal skills as well as theater, dancing, and acting and loves to perform LIVE with an album in the works.
Here she is for her very first public performance LIVE at the Bastille Day Los Angeles last year at the 11th Annual Event introduced by Johan & The Panache Band interpreting a popular French song by Joe Dassin “Aux Champs Elysées” in honour of the French National Day!
We’d like to thank Bastille Day LA ‘s gracious hosts from The French Connection Radio and Passions Productions producers of Bastille Day Los Angeles event.
A special thank you also to auntie Christelle Karen Gaspart, stylist for the cool outfit!
This year SAMSARA XOXO has been invited to celebrate her French spirit at the 12th Annual Bastille Day Los Angeles Festival on Sunday July 14, 2013! At noon, she will be singing the French National Anthem La Marseillaise acapella and interpreting some of Ben l’Oncle Soul accompanied with Simply Johan on acoustic. This is going to be a very special father & daughter performance on stage!

Flashback.. May 4th, 1959 the very First Annual Grammy Awards took place and awarded film composer Henry Mancini (April 16, 1924 – June 14, 1994) the very first Album of the Year Award for The Music From Peter Gunn! A half century later, Mancini’s theme The Pink Panther released in 1963 is still alive and kicking and fresh as ever!
One of my ultimate favorite instrumental tracks, The Pink Panther was released as a single in 1964 by RCA Records reaching Top 10 in the Adult Contemporary Billboard and winning 3 Grammy Awards including an Academy Awards nomination for original Music Score. Mancini went on to receive an accolade record number of Grammy Awards, including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995. Great inspired music is everlasting!
