Sami Abadi (Buenos Aires, Argentina 1965) composer, multi-instrumentalist and electronic performer. From 1995 Sami has been developing his own sound, initially based on his unique electric violin playing through real time electronic processing. His music is structured around open concepts, including the ambient praxis and experimental approaches with influence from his studies in ethnomusic. The results are unexpected and highly original. With a huge interest in live performance, Sami has played solo concerts extensively and has been invited to lay his sound with virtually everybody at the contemporary/ electronic/ progressive scene in Argentina. Sami Abadi is also the electric violin player with Ultratango, a new electronic-tango ensemble that plays mostly Astor Piazzolla's music on electronic instruments. He toured in New York City in 1998 (10 concerts, including The Living Room, Baby Jupiter, The Knitting Factory) and again in august 2000 (16 concerts, including CB's Gallery, The Baggott Inn, Void, and one more time The Knitting Factory, plus all the venues of the previous gig). His avant garde work with processed toys was featured at the LEM Festival -Barcelona- in october 2004. His solo albums, "Lejos o leve?" (1998) and "Lunar" (2003) have been an unusual success for an ambient/experimental artist in Argentina. His work has been celebrated by the local press, with some international echo (The Wire, october 2000). Sami Abadi has been awarded by The Bridgestone Foundation for his electronic composition Minotauro ("Primera Bienal de Arte Bridgestone", november 2000). Sami Abadi's third solo album "Escuela de Vuelo para Anfibios" ["amphibians' school of flight] featuring music played entirely with toy instruments through electronics, was released in 2006 thru the MDR label. Sami has developed a career as a music educator as well.

He teaches at the Universidad de Palermo, is a founder member of FLADEM (Foro LatinoAmericano de Educación Musical), a workshop leader at Colleges and Universties and an author on music education ("Musica, Maestro!", Humanitas 1994 & Lumen/Humanitas 2001). www.samiabadi.com.ar Read more on Last.fm.
