Chafa Interview on Nagamag


Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Piano-led, cinematic, & ambient contemporary classical music.

Few words about your musical background and career?

I began teaching myself piano when I was twelve years old, but I always loved music. Growing up in the Bay Area (California), I was introduced to several different cultures and styles of music.
It wasn't long before I felt the need to express my own thoughts and feelings through art, and piano was the instrument I felt the most connected to.

Before the pandemic, I would perform locally, but after spending time recording and releasing my music during this last year, I have my eyes set on creating music for film and potentially collaborating with other composers and orchestras.

Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Seeing performers on the street as a kid really inspired me. Watching their music move people to dance, smile, laugh, or cry was inspiring. I wouldn't learn an instrument for several more years, but my love for music continued to grow until I felt the urge one day to sit down and play some of the songs I loved so much.

Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Beirut "Elephant Gun"

Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?

Max Richter "Written on the Sky"
