Real Name:
Sampda Sharma
Profile:
Samsaya (born Sampda Sharma) is a Norwegian singer and actress.

As a child, she lived in India with her family; and moved to Oslo, Norway when she was 11 months old.
Growing up, she was influenced by hip-hop. She joined with her first band at the age of nineteen. After several years of making music with other urban musicians in Oslo, she broke through as an actress.

In 2004, she released her debut album Shedding Skin. After touring Norway, she took a break, and a couple of years later she set off to New York.
In 2008 she released a new single, Change, which debuted at no. 2 on the Norwegian singles chart. The song Dodge It, also released in 2008, appeared in the Oscar-nominated movie The Wrestler. In 2009 she released two singles: Money and ADHD.
Several promotional singles such as Good With The Bad, Breaking Bad and Jaywalking were released in the following years, but an album never materialized.

She returned in September 2013 with a new single, Stereotype. It was released to critical acclaim, and a self-titled EP including the aforementioned single, new track Bombay Calling, and two previous releases, Good with the Bad and Jaywalking, was released in July 2014. Her second album, Bombay Calling, followed in April 2015 - her first worldwide release - preceded by the single Beginning at the End.
