sami.the.great Brooklyn, New York
Sami Akbari, known musically as sami.the.great, spent her childhood growing up in both Iran and the United States. As an
adolescent she was somewhere between the two cultures, causing her to feel out of place among her peers. In music, Sami found somewhere that she belonged.
Her music showcases a small-framed singer whose impassioned voice fills the spaces and lives around her.
