Sofia Kourtesis Releases Deeply Personal Single “Vajkoczy”

||, |

Today, Sofia Kourtesis shares a song with more meaning behind it than just “a fun beat to dance to.” The track, “Vajkoczy,” is dedicated to Peter Vajkoczy, a renowned neurosurgeon responsible for extending the life of Sofia’s mother. Sofia’s upcoming album, Madres, coming this October, additionally pays tribute to the life-altering surgeon and his work.

A somber, yet hopeful piano progression opens “Vajkoczy,” as Sofia beautifully communicates her thoughts through an emotional vocal performance. A tropical, percussive beat provides a bright, guiding light to contrast the track’s introspective themes. On her inspiration, Sofia comments “My muse, my hero, the world should have more Vajkoczy.”
