The Best of Adnan Sami

Adnan Sami started playing piano since the age of five. Sami began taking lessons from Pandit Shivkumar Sharma when visiting India during his school vacations. Indian singing legend Asha Bhosle spotted talent in a ten-year-old Sami at an R.D Burman concert in London, and encouraged him to take up music as a career.

As a teenager, Sami, when performing on the keyboard at a programme in Stockholm, was noticed by Keyboard Magazine as being the fastest man on keyboard in Asia.

Sami went on to learn Indian classical music from Maharaj Kathak, a Pakistani classical singing teacher and dancer. At the age of sixteen, Sami was approached to write a song for famine-hit Ethiopia for which he won a special award from UNICEF

He became the first person to play Indian classical music on the electric piano.

These, IMO, were the best songs by this exceptional talent -

Bheegi Bheegi Raaton me -

Tera Chehra -

Kabhi toh Nazar Milao -

Teri Yaad -

Sun Zara – This song actually featured in the film Lucky-No Time For Love which had Salman Khan. But this video is of Adnan Sami performing it live
