"Equipped with a childlike voice — think Joanna Newsom — Surma masters every instrument that is around her. She studied double bass in a jazz school, but that never stopped her from learning every instrument she could reach. Her sonic blend combines ambient music, post-rock and jazz influences. The result? A really unique, warm and intimate sound. Ethereal melodies created by a one-woman-band that will take you to another place." - Europavox
"An exquisitely beautiful first track, it’s truly an otherworldly journey – through a shimmer guitar line, and Umbelino’s Bjork-esque vocals – there’s elements of Portishead and Daughter thrown in for good measure. This demands repeat listens." - Crack In The Road
Surma has already appeared on the most important portuguese festivals and toured Spain, France, UK, Sweden and Germany. The young artist plays guitar and bass while her music is an unusual mix of different electronic sounds. She combines these sounds with the help of loop pedals. The result is wonderful music that lies in between jazz and ambient music.
On her first recorded song “Maasai”, she proves how beautifully fragile her voice is. The Portuguese musician has only just started her career and her debut album is due in the coming winter season. The 21-year old takes her listeners on an exciting music trip.
She has just found her way and October will be the time for a debut record.
She left all the other songs aside and recorded something completely different.
"Hemma" shows the way.
