Introduce Yourselves: Samavayo

What is the name of your band?


What is the genre of music that you play?

It’s energetic Stoner Rock with progressive and psychedelic elements.

Can you give a brief history of the band of how it came together and where it is today?

We started as a young band of 4 in 2000 and release our first album in 2005 “Death.March.Melodies!”.

Later after several releases and many many shows we became a trio in 2013 and the new chapter of Samavayo started.

The important marks were the album debut as a trio “Dakota” (2016) and our latest album “Vatan” (2018). We played great tours with Greenleaf, Stoned Jesus and The Machine and a lot of awesome festivals like Desertfest Berlin, Desertfest London, Stoned from the Underground and many more.

Our new album will be released in 2022 and have several guest musicians from befriended bands! We will play Desertfest Berlin (GER) and Sonic Blast Moledo (POR) in 2022.

What can people expect from your music?

This is what people get on live shows and on our records: Energetic heavy rock music with melodic singing, walls of guitar and bass, groovy and powerful drums and a lot of fun for us playing it! Besides English lyrics we also have some Persian (Farsi) songs!
