Singing for love and a bouquet of roses, Indira and Uma started their careers in the Fifties. They performed at well-known clubs and Gymkhanas in Mumbai and other metros of India. They were soon the rage of Mumbai and also made an impact in Kolkata and Sri Lanka. Their singing also enabled them to team up with such legends as Hal Green and his band Chick Chocolate, Goody Seervai, Ken Mack, Maurice Concessio and Micky Corriea. While blending beautifully they managed to retain their distinctive styles.

Indira’s rich, warm, velvet voice went straight to the heart. Uma’s, vibrant, naughty and wide ranged, sometimes smooth, sometimes raspy voice, on the other hand, was always the fun part of their act. They were successful as both a team and solo. Their everlasting hits still enchant fans. “Besame Mucho”, “Autumn Leaves”, “My heart Belongs to Daddy”, “Hello Dolly”, “I left my heart in San Francisco” and other all time favorites were some of there bigger hits. Old Jazz favorites, calypsos, waltzes and Latin American numbers were part of their versatile repertoire. “Bombay mera hai” sung by Uma Pocha Sami is still a show stealer.

With today’s technological advancements and marketing, the Sami Sisters would have given the Spice Girls a run for their money.

The Sami Sisters now team up with their younger sisters Maya and Usha to add a twist of lime to their musical cocktail. In the swinging, singing saris, they are – “The Sami Sisters".

Indira was born and brought up in Mumbai. She studied at the Convent of Jesus and Mary and St. Xavier’s College. She is now a a successful Travel industry executive.

Uma, also born and brought up in Mumba, went to Convent of Jesus and Mary and St. Xavier’s College like her sister and is now a successful Doctor.

Maya, the youngest of the sisters, is an advertising whiz and has a lot of music to her credit. She and Usha have some scintillating songs like “Viva Espana”, “Bow down Mister” and “Jail House Rock” up their sleeves.
