The Samsara Collective started in January 2015 as the Samsara Sessions, by a small group of friends who wanted to give up-and-coming local musicians the chance to be heard by filming and recording a free live session video of their original music and promoting them on our social media platforms.
We didn’t anticipate the response that we had and we became involved in a beautiful music scene in Manchester, UK.
After we had filmed around 100 Individual session videos we changed our name to The Samsara Collective as our skills and experiences led us to start recording EPs and Albums, Filming official music videos and promotional videos, web, graphic and logo designing, and running our own music nights and intimate studio gigs.
We stick to our ethos of unearthing new up and coming musicians with The Samsara Sessions, and we also offer affordable creative services to help start or further their career. And now we are looking into the possibility of expanding more around the UK, working with worldwide renowned artists and collaborations with other creative channels.
