Born in 1983 in the small community of Pikogan Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Samian, whose name is simply the Algonquin translation of his name ‘Samuel‘ is a mongrel who has chosen rap as his mode of expression.
In his writing, he offers a personal interpretation of his life, identity and history of his people. In addition to incorporating drums and native songs to contemporary hip hop rhythms, he worked with his grandmother to include the language of their ancestors and offer a hip hop true to the reality of his community.
Being from Quebec, Canada – his raps are in French.
