With over 20 years of experience in Los Angeles and New York, Samanta Balassa is a highly skilled Composer specializing in crafting original music scores for visual media, including Films and TV Series. Her music has been featured in projects that have won awards with ASCAP, Cannes, Chicago Film Festival & London International awards.

As a composer, my ultimate aspiration is to attain the pinnacle of musicality in the realm of storytelling. I firmly believe that discovery possesses its own cadence, and I am unwavering in my dedication to finding that rhythm alongside my creative partners.

With a fresh and precise approach, I deftly balance intuition and reason, daring to challenge established knowledge with boundless imagination. My musical fluidity knows no bounds as it effortlessly traverses diverse landscapes and genres, while I have an innate ability to design sounds that stand out uniquely on their own.

Driven by a fervent passion for exploring the unexpected, I am convinced that this exploration holds the key to creating magical moments through music, and I derive immense joy from witnessing how it profoundly transforms scenes.

Originally from Brazil and deeply influenced by its rich harmonic and percussive music, my journey includes the achievement of a Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from Berklee College of Music in 2001. I have had the honor of lending my voice to esteemed artists such as David Byrne, Bebel Gilberto, and Brazilian Girls.
