  • The Reminders are a rare and remarkable musical duo seamlessly blending soulful sounds and roots music with insightful messages and thoughtful lyrics. The group consists of Brussels-born emcee Big Samir and Queens-born emcee and vocalist Aja Black, a collective creative force that's hard to beat. The two have an undeniably magical chemistry as they share more than just lyrical abilities and stages–Samir and Aja have also been married for nearly a decade.

    Big Samir weaves intricate rhythmic patterns with a bilingual French and English flow, displaying street-smart credibility in his lyrics and cool demeanor. His performance is beautifully complimented by Black's confident delivery, diverse cadences and unique vocal stylings.

    Their unique mashup of razor-sharp rhymes, reggae-tinged hip-hop beats and soulful vocals form the perfect backdrop for their relevant and inspiring themes. This leaves a lasting impression on listeners with audiences always wanting more.

    The Reminders take their hip-hop foundation and move it beyond genre, time and space to create a global musical experience that is classic and speaks to anyone willing to participate.
