More Info:

Samir Shukry was born in Akko (Acre), Israel, into a family of musicians. His father, Sodki Shukry, a teacher of Arabic music, was also considered one of the country's most prolific lyricists, composers and arrangers of Arabic music. After graduating from high school in Akko, Samir moved to New York to continue his musical training. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Queens College in New York, with a double major in Western classical music and music education. In 1987, Samir returned to Israel to live and perform. It was here that he recorded his big hit, "Rona", named after his eldest daughter, whom he wanted to reunite with in the U. S. The song's success brought Samir back to Israel for good. His popularity soared. In early 1990, Samir married Jamila, a prominent Israeli lawyer, and a year later their son Nadir was born. That same year, Samir began performing in France, where he received a warm welcome from a mixed audience. His approach, a blend of his native Arabic/Oriental style and the Western music he studied, resulting in his own unique style, has since developed into a musical insignia. He sings and plays on a white electric violin, which he believes has become a symbol of peace and brotherhood, like the white dove. His performances at the Olympia and the Palais des Congrès in Paris have made him a mainstay of the local scene, and his shows have become very popular within the Arab and Jewish communities and have toured the world. He is recognized as a creative artist who builds bridges between nationalities. Since then, Samir has released almost one album a year. Samir's dream is to become an ambassador for peace, playing the violin and singing into the hearts and souls of people from all nations around the world.
