About Kazdoura!
 

Kazdoura is a Toronto-based band that serves up Arabic fusion with a modern twist. Equal parts nostalgia and reinvention, their style is a cross-cultural blend of Eastern and Western music that blends old-world Arabic classics with jazz, funk, electro-pop, and disco. This project was founded in the summer of 2020, quickly finding success online, where their videos have collected more than 3 million views on Tik Tok. Singer Leen is a newcomer from Syria whose passion for classical Arabic music led her to collaborate with jazz musician Johnny who has a Lebanese background in order introduce this fusion music to a Canadian audience. In June 2022, Kazdoura released their debut EP "Wain". Kazdoura has been performing extensively in Toronto and Montreal and festivals like the Toronto Palestine Film Festival, Small World Music Festival, Toronto Ukrainian Festival, Taste of the Middle East, and more. Currently, Kazdoura is working on an LP set to be released in the Spring of 2024.
