Then Efi recorded a version of Fight Song by Rachel Platten. Most recently Efi released her video for her latest song, Summer Days.
Efi Gjika is back with a brand new song and video clip for the song Summer Days. The video was filmed during her happy summer holiday fun days!! The filming was at a combination of a cruise on board the MSC Cruise liner in the Mediterranean, also on the Greek Ionian islands and at home in the Aquapark in Tirana. The tour included places like Cagliari Beach (Italy), Palma, Majorca (Spain), Valencia (Spain), Marseilles (France) and Lefkas (Greece).
Efi was happy in Marseille when a group of tourists sang along with her and they enjoyed Efi’s live performance very much.
Efi is grateful for the super team that made the making of the Summer Days video possible. The song Summer Days was composed by Ada Satka and produced by Sevada Davoodian (Humble Sohl). The director and producer of the video was Kliton Gjika. Thanks to Sokol Marsi recording studio and Arbi Malile CC Creative consulting for the graphics. The editing is by Lesli Kita. The styling, make up and hair are by Hristina Gjika.
