The Reminders blend soulful sounds and roots music with insightful messages and thoughtful lyrics. This musical duo consists of Brussels-born emcee Big Samir and Queens-born emcee/vocalist Aja Black. Big Samir weaves intricate rhythmic patterns with a bilingual French/English flow, displaying his street-smart credibility in both his lyrics and cool demeanor. This is complemented by Aja Black's confident delivery, diverse cadences, and unique vocal stylings. The couple shares a partnership in both music and life as Samir and Aja have been married for almost a decade. Their debut album “Recollect” dropped in 2008 followed by “Born Champions” in 2012.
