Sami Yusuf was born in the month July 1980. He was born into a musical family of Azeri origin and thus music played an integral part in his life. Samis initial training came from his father, who is an internationally renowned composer, poet, and a multitalented musician.
Sami learnt to play several instruments at a very young age and gradually began to show a keen interest in singing and composing. He studied composition at various institutions and with several composers and muscians.
Sami has been composing from a very young age and his beautiful voice is supplemented by his extensive knowledge of notes and harmonies. He has also a good understanding of music theory and the Middle Eastern modes (or Maqams).
Indeed, it is rare to find a person who has all these talents. Sami is also a devout practicing Muslim who sees songs as a means of promoting the message of Islam and encouraging the youth to be proud of their religion and identity.
