While Singer/songwriter Sami Chohfi is based in Seattle, he is undeniably a modern citizen of the world
His debut solo album, Extraordinary World, was written across six countries over the last two years. From his journeys across the globe as a brand ambassador for the apparel and lifestyle company, Be Good to People to tours with his band Blue Helix across his family's native country of Brazil, Chohfi’s songwriting takes a rock upbringing and spins it with musical influences from around the world.
Blending alternative rock, folk and acoustic songwriting, Extraordinary World showcases Chohfi's ability to inspire his listeners by transporting them into the majestic scenes he’s witnessed over the past few years, whether in Brazil, Cambodia, France, India, Kenya or The Philippines. Sami’s music video “Dirty Your Soul” filmed in India was recently featured on the Rolling Stone.
"With every song being born in a different part of the planet, the one thing I can tell you is we are not as different as we think," Chohfi says. "I am constantly reminded how all people just want to fit in, be loved, and be understood. This album is a culmination of the last two years of my life and the beautiful interactions with people that I shared."
If I could give my younger self advice, I would tell him this: "While life might bruise your body and dirty your soul along the way, you should remember to always find hope in yourself and fight for a better tomorrow". Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself and watch a behind the scenes featurette below
