Masquerade by Samantha Siva

Masquerade is a celebration of life inspired by passion and a love of all things eclectic and cosmopolitan. Samantha Siva does a good job of getting the message across as she blends jazz and soul with European/Latin flavors.

If you like Sade, you will enjoy the title track, which leaves you wanting to push repeat to play it again.

Famed musicians such as world-renowned pianist David Benoit, tenor saxophonist Richard Elliott, guitarist Chieli Minucci and drummer Poogie Bell all contribute nicely to this project.

"Masquerade" shows a multitalented Siva as she progresses as a multiinstrumentalist, producer, vocalist and songwriter. "Answer to Your Soul" is catchy and upbeat, while "Sugar" blends a touch of R&B flavor with sensual overtones.

All tracks seem hypnotic in nature, and Siva doesn't confine herself to any musical style as she seeks to blend contemporary sounds with her soulful, sultry vocals.

"Masquerade" is a happy, joyful experience, and Siva invites you to join and experience the freedom she has.
