Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Sami Saula Interview – KA Las Vegas…
Born in France, Sami SAULA have been a professional performer, musician and acrobat for 15 years.
Being an elite in the discipline of parkour like you can read into the book “Breaking The Jump by Julie Angel”, he became an acrobat at Cirque du Soleil in 2003, also becoming a multi instrumentalist within a few years.
His passion for music and acrobatics since an early age allowed him to open himself to other disciplines and took him where he is today, one of the rare musician/ acrobats within the cirque du soleil company.
In addition to be part of the acrobats at Ka, he developed some other assets to become one of the musician playing an Earth Harp (one of the largest harps in the World uniquely created for the show by William Close), various percussions but he also quickly became the official back up guitar player for the show.

Sami is also part of a large scale and ongoing charity music project which includes artists such as Hank Marvin, Paul Gilbert, Brett Garsed and Stian Carstensen. They hope to extend the list to include Slash, Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton.
