Biography

Samira Said (Arabic: سميرة سعيد), born January 10, 1959 and raised in Rabat, Morocco is a Moroccan singer. Said began singing at an early age. In addition to being gifted with a sensitive, beautiful voice; she always sensed a strong connection between her and singing. Music was her own way of expressing herself, and she knew quite well that it was what she wanted.

Encouraged by her family, Samira went on to participating in new talents’ shows. The first time the Moroccan public saw her in the T.V. show “Mawaheb”, they knew that the shy little girl was going to be a star, and she did.

In a short time, Samira Bensaid, as Moroccans like to call her, became one of the leading names in the music scene in Morocco. She had a decent repertoire: “Maghlouba”, “Wa’ady”, etc…

However, Samira was not satisfied with what she had accomplished. Her ambition and dreams were bigger than anything. She remembered, her idol as well as friend, Abdul halim Hafedh’s advice to move to Egypt and expand her career.

In the early eighties, Samira moved to Egypt and recorded a song “Al hob Elli Ana Aichah”, composed by Mohamad Sultan. She, then, went on to recording with big names in the music scene in Egypt. She sang for Baligh Hamdi, Helmi Bakr, Mohamad Al-Mouji, etc…
