DJ Tala Samman Opens for Dua Lipa
MVM & Co. represents DJ Tala Samman who was the opening act for Dua Lipaa’s concert in Abu Dhabi, Du Forum, 24th February 2018.
Fast becoming a prevalent name within the Middle East’s DJ circuit, the Syrian born beauty brings more than just the music. An original It Girl of the region, Samman offers fresh beats with her sets working off the vibe of the crowd. Finding a niche when it comes to RnB music, she has been mixing for some of the world’s biggest brands, including Lacoste, Tory Burch and Tod’s to Vogue Italia, the Dubai International Film Festival and Reebok at Sole DXB.
Born in Chicago and raised in Dubai, she always had a love for music. Playing the violin growing up, her interest in the industry was further sparked by her sister’s collections of vinyls and friends who worked as singers, producers and DJs within the industry. Travelling the world, she first tried her hand at the art when studying in London. Picking up the classes back in Dubai, she put in the time attending workshops for 10hours a week for a year.
Meeting an agent back on a trip in London, it was only then that she was convinced to peruse her talent professionally. Striving to learn and discover all she can, she draws inspiration from around the world. Citing Toronto as her top city for going out for music, many of her favorite artists came from there including Nav and 88 Glam, with her discovering them when they were just on SoundCloud. Not just a career, music is a lifestyle that Samman fully embraces.
