INFO


Samowar is the electronics project of Leen Diependaele. With voice, synths and beats they build a world of their own through loops and FX. The result: an authentic, sometimes vulnerable and experimental sound.

This did not go unnoticed: Samowar made it to the finals of Humo's Rock Rally 2014, was laureate of Theater Aan Zee 2013, second FrappantPop 2011, ... and also collaborated with Arsenal (Vocal FX on the song 4Golden Are You Still?4 [FURU] and the poem 'The writer' in 'Room Of Imaginary Creatures'), Arsenal/Lazarus (music to the podcast 'Daughters Of Entrepreneurs') and her musical muses (Roos Rebergen, Lennert Coorevits, Dienne Bogaerts and Johannes Genard) during Monday Muse, which will have a live follow-up in August.

After quite a few projects in theater (De Roovers, Het Paleis, Froefroe) and performances with bands like Reymer, Marcel Vanthilt, Pepieyaya... her self-titled EP (2014) finally gets a worthy successor. Samowar's debut album 'Leeway' was written during a residency on the island of Comacina (IT). Surrounded by sailboats, Leen learned about Leeway. With Leeway you express (in degrees) how much you deviate to reach your goal. But the meaning of Leeway goes much broader: space to play / room to move / slack / drift / breathing space / margin / arm's reach... The album was produced and musically lifted by Stijn Cole (Stan Lee Cole, Scheire en de schepping). Andrew Claes (STUFF., Internal Sun) provided the extra finishing touch.

Samowar could already be admired live as support for SOHN in the AB and My Brightest Diamond in the Botanique and as regular support for School Is Cool and Eefje de Visser. Samowar has also played at a number of festivals such as Boomtown, Absolutely Free Festival and Incubate (NL).
