At the age of 14, heavily influenced by the rock-and-roll craze sweeping Israel, he formed a band called "The Red Lovers" with three childhood friends. After finishing high school at Terra Santa in Akko, Samir left for New York City to continue his musical odyssey.  He graduated from Queens College in New York with a Bachelor of Arts degree double majoring in Western Classical Music and Music Education.

He produced his first album in 1982, titled "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow."  It covered a wide variety of classics including Oum Kartoum's Inta Umri and hits by Israeli phenomenon Zohar Argov. In 1983 he released his second album "Heart to Heart" that included the hit Habibi Ya Eini (My Love My Eyes). Read more on Last.fm.
