Samite Performs on New Episode of Expressions


Expressions returns with a new episode featuring traditional African folk artist, Samite. This world renowned talent performed his first concert since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic at the WSKG Studios in the fall of 2021 and we are happy to give you a front row seat to the performance. Samite is joined onstage by longtime friend and collaborator Nate Richardson in a career spanning setlist of songs.

Along with the concert performances this half hour episode features a segment detailing Samite’s journey to upstate New York and the amazing challenges he has faced along the way.

We are also pleased to introduce Adara Alston as our host of Expressions. For the past decade, this talented actress has entertained local audiences in a variety of productions ranging from South Pacific to The Crucible to Shrek. Be on the lookout for more from Adara as the new season progresses.
