Offshore Entertainment Production is proud to present Sami Yusuf’s Salaam Concert on 8th July 2012 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. He will be here to perform for the first time to kickstart his concert tour in South East Asia and to release his fourth album, Salaam.
Sami Yusuf, the 31-year old British-Muslim singer-songwriter has played to sold out concerts around Bosnia, Canada, France, Belgium, Finland, Austria, Greece and the Netherlands. In the Middle East and Asian regions, he performed to crowds of tens of thousands in Egypt’s Cairo and Alexandria, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE and Saudi Arabia among others. His most notable show saw a staggering 250,000 people pack Taksim Square in Istanbul, Turkey, earning him the title “Islam’s Biggest Rock Star” by Time magazine.
Yusuf’s genre of music is one he self-coined as Spiritique which means that it is more spiritual than religious. Incorporating Middle Eastern and Western harmonics into his songs, he utilizes music as a facilitator for spiritual appreciation, regardless of race and religion.”
All the tracks from his first three albums are excellent. His groundbreaking debut ‘Al-Muallim’ sold over 3 million copies. It was followed by his second release the highly acclaimed, ‘My Ummah’ which sold well over 4 million copies. The songs that stands out include “Al-Mu’allim”, “Supplication”,”My Ummah” and “Healing”; just to name a few. Despite the continual debate about musical instrument usage in his music, the sublime messages from the lyrics are more influential, inspiring and peaceful.
For this upcoming concert, Yusuf will be performing 18 songs including the song “You Came To Me” his first duet with an Asian artist, Malaysia’s pop queen, Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza which features a combination of English, Malay and Arabic lyrics.
