Meet the Artist: Interview with singer Flori Loga
NY Elite: How did you get started and how would you describe your music?
Flori Loga: I got started at a very early age of 7, when I discovered that I could sing. After that I would sing everywhere and everyone in my family found out that I had a passion for music. I would describe my music as everything to me. For me music is life, it is like the air I breath, something that fulfills my life, I just can’t live without it.
NY Elite: What does art means to you?
Flori Loga: Art is a form of entertainment, that pleases people, makes them feel better. For me art is a feeling, it is something that not everyone can do. Being an artist means being blessed and I am lucky to be one of them.
NY Elite: What projects are you currently working on?
Flori Loga: I know it has been a while since my last videoclip, but right now I’m working to bring two big projects for me where I will sing solo and another one with my brother. It is going to be something different that people did not hear before from me. I am bringing up a very romantic and heart breaking song, that a lot of people can find themselves there. The other song is more rhythmic, more like a dance song that will come out with a comic videoclip.
NY Elite: Where was your last performance?
Flori Loga: My last performance was in United States where I invited a lot of Albanian artists.
NY Elite: Where would you most like to perform and tell us about some of your favorite projects you have been part of.
Flori Loga: Of course I would like the most to perform for Albanian fans but being unable to do that by living in United States I tried to bring Albanians together with concerts here.
My favorite projects that I have been part of are the songs I did with my brother that were very famous at that time. And I want to thank him for his strong support all this time he has been with me. Also I wish him luck with his new song he just announced.
NY Elite: If you could try a new genre of music, what would it be?
Flori Loga: Good question, I don’t know I’m not sure maybe something more rhythmic, more entertaining just like the new song that I’m making.
NY Elite: Do you enjoy writing music and lyrics?
Flori Loga: I love wring music and most of the time I write my own lyrics. I feel like writing my lyrics I can express better my feelings for the song. I feel like I get more into the song and it just gets more personal, it is more about me.
NY Elite: Do you have a formal music education/training?
Flori Loga: Yes I practice myself everyday, I have all the equipment that I need in my house. It makes me start my day better when I sing.
NY Elite: Do you play any instruments?
Flori Loga: Yes I do. I play key boards.
NY Elite: What hidden talents do you have?
Flori Loga: Nothing more than what I do. Owing a restaurant and singing I believe are lots of talent, it requires a lot of hard work doing both.
NY Elite: Who are your musical influences?
Flori Loga: My daughter and the rest of my family of course.
NY Elite: What personal advice would you give to someone wanting to pursue this career?
Flori Loga: I would just say what I mentioned earlier, everything comes with hard work, every success is a fruit of the good work. Of course talent is the most important thing too. But I would absolutely motivate all the young generation to not give up their dreams and hopes if you know you are good enough and work hard everything good comes after, just like it did to me.
NY Elite: What can we expect from you in 2017? Any tour plan?
Flori Loga: Right now just like I said I am working on my songs and I’m trying to bring them out as soon as possible. I am also thinking about a new song with my brother Argjend Loga. It was my brother’s idea for this song. We believe that this song is going to be a successful one. We are exited and we can not wait for this new project. Right now I don’t have any tour plans, I will be more focused on my new songs.
