Sami, who was recently in the Capital to promote his comeback album, is thrilled with the positive response it has got. “This is the answer to people who think that independent music can’t survive today. People have been very generous in the way they have received the album and I’m overwhelmed.”
“All my albums are biographical, including this one. With every song, you can say that he went through that thing he has written about, whether it was humourous or serious. If I say ‘Lift Kara De’, I was going through trouble at that time. I convey things through music. Every song tells you a story about my life. But everyone can relate to it with their own individual experience,” says the Canadian citizen of Pakistani-Indian origin.
What’s more on his plate? “I’m back to playback singing and composing. I have sung for the film Shootout at Wadala. And then, I’m also doing a lead role in a Bollywood film, which I’m looking forward to,” he says.
