Recorded at Berlin's Big Snuff Studio by Richard Berhens (Heat, Samsara Blues Experiment) in February 2016,Dakotais the band's fifth full-length and their first record as a three-piece.

All instruments onDakotawere recorded simultaneously, no digital correction tool was used in order to preserve the band's live energy, which they are well-known for. The album was named after the Native American tribe: "Dakota" means a friend, an ally. A perfect translation ofSamavayo's creative synergy and unity as a band throughout the years.

Formed in 2010, German heavy rock band Samavayohave been a trio for only three years now. All three band members grew up in East Berlin's neighbourhoods of Lichtenberg and Friedrichshain. As a 10-year old kid, singer Behrang Alavi fled to Berlin as a political refugee from his home country of Iran, whereas brothers Andreas and Stephan Voland grew up in the GDR in East Berlin.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the city opened its doors, letting in all cultural influences from abroad. The capital became a melting pot where a singer from Teheran and two brothers from Berlin could start making music. More than 500 live shows in Europe and overseas followed, including Brazil, Albania, Greece, Croatia, France. Rankingamong the most touring stoner bands in Germany,Samavayoperformed at Stoned from the Underground and will make an appearance at Desertfest Berlin this spring.

This new album as a three piece entitledDakotablends the sound of 70's and 90's rock, combining progressive instrumental jams and heavier mosh-inducing parts with oriental elements and unusual rhythms. The best example is "Arezuye Bahare", which isSamavayo's second song in Persian language. Iranian singer Behrang Alavi sings about freedom: as a former political refugee, Behrang reacts to a current European topic that affects him deeply because of his own experience.
