FIERCELY INDEPENDENT: The Stories Behind The Music
- A Musical Memoir - 


One thing about AMARU: the man never sits still, at least not for too long. He started to write and put together his second book
"
FIERCELY INDEPENDENT: The Stories Behind The Music - A Musical Memoir -" in the fall of 2021.
The book chronicles AMARU's musical releases from 2008 with the release of his first EP, recorded in Chicago (U.S.A.),
up until 2022 with the release of his 14th. single "I Got The Blues (Radio Mix)" from his
award-winning debut album "
Champagne Attitude".

The title of this book was inspired by a
review of AMARU's single "Tell Me" by an Australian publication in which
the writer describes AMARU as "
fiercely independent". And in all honesty he wasn't telling any lies!
Because if "fiercely independent artist" was a word, it would be spelled "AMARU"!
All one has to do is browse through this website for his body of work.

In "
FIERCELY INDEPENDENT: The Stories Behind The Music - A Musical Memoir -" AMARU shares with his readers the 
stories behind his musical releases, from inception to drama, from production to finished product and every stage
in between. It's not easy being an independent artist, but it's certainly not impossible.
And AMARU illustrates that perfectly in his new book!
AMARU dedicated this book to his audience, with love and gratitude.

AMARU's new coffee table book features a
glossy hard cover with high quality photos printed on very thick, durable and
fingerprint proof paper
. When browsing through the book, the pages will lay flat for your convenience.
In addition to that the book also comes in a
stunning and very stylish box which doesn't only
make for a classy presentation, it will definitely be a conversation starter, if anything!

AMARU COOKS - A Touch Of Suriname Through Food & Anecdotes

2020 may have landed us in a situation no one saw coming, but just in time for Christmas AMARU shines a light in the darkness
as he makes his
literary debut with the release of his cookbook "AMARU COOKS - A Touch Of Suriname Through Food & Anecdotes".
It's been a long time coming, though. AMARU started to work on this book around the end of 2017, but because of the pending release
of his
award winning debut album "Champagne Attitude", which needed to be promoted, the book project was pushed to the back burner.

"
AMARU COOKS - A Touch Of Suriname Through Food & Anecdotes" is an introduction to the very diverse Surinamese cuisine and
AMARU has included a great number of very popular dishes from his native Suriname, taking into consideration the fact that the
ingredients for the aforementioned recipes are ingredients that are readily available in most countries. After all, purchasing a cookbook
would suggest that one will try to prepare some of the dishes in said cookbook, if not all of them. And ingredients that are not available
because of geographic restrictions would be a very unfortunate circumstance.

"
AMARU COOKS - A Touch Of Suriname Through Food & Anecdotes" is a cookbook that describes in detail the preparation of the dishes as if
AMARU himself is right there with you, guiding you along the way. The book is written in English and the author has done his very best to accommodate English speaking people who are both on the metric as well as on the imperial system, so measurements are listed
in inches, fluid ounces, centimeters, milliliters and centimeters, for instance.

While AMARU introduces his readers to great recipes from his homeland, he also reflects on times passed.
In the "
Reflections" chapters he shares with you stories from his childhood, many pertaining to cooking, but he also touches briefly
on his work as a singer and an actor. In addition to that, the visuals that accompany the recipes are also a feast for the eyes!
As a published (food) photographer himself, AMARU shot all the photos himself and he wanted to present his audience with
nothing but the best! And speaking of visuals, make sure to
subscribe to AMARU's culinary web series "Food & The Single Guy" on Youtube.
