Alina Amuri is rooted in the Neo Soul/Urban genre. Her voice is modern, warm, and deeply touching. Her melodious singing transfixes us and gives us goosebumps, only to make us groove a moment later as if there was no tomorrow. And as if Amuri’s voice weren’t instrument enough already, she will occasionally wield a guitar or even a transverse flute to entrance us further.
Her songs are developed in a variety of ways; in jam-sessions with other musicians, or sometimes alone, at home. The stories have a way of falling into her lap: a situation, observed on a train; a hook, sprung to life on her lips. Immediately, she records these moments on her phone. Her songs reflect myriad situations in life – not primarily her own.
« I CALL IT MODERNS STORYTELLING. YEAH, THAT’S WHAT IT IS.»
The world is a stage. Alina incorporates all her resources into her performances, which leads to unforgettable live shows: at the Frauenfeld Open Air, in Zurich’s Moods club, at the Baloise Session, the Zurich Film Festival, Les Docks in Lausanne, Bierhübeli Bern, the Instituto Svizzero in Rome, Italy, or at the Centre Culturel Suisse in Paris, France.
She shines as a solo act, as a member of a trio or with a full band, as a headliner or as the supporting act for such artists as Raphael Saadiq, John Legend, Naturally 7, Selah Sue or Jessy J.
In 2015, she won SRF 3 “Best Talent April” award, the year after she was nominated for the Swiss Music Award in category «Best Talent». In 2019, Alina Amuri won the Swiss Live Talents Award in the category “Best Emerging Talent”.
«New stuff is in the making!»
Alina is currently working on new music. New releases are being planned, and her newly assembled live sets will soon bring Alina Amuri’s magic grove back to audiences everywhere. Stay tuned!
