#Young Artist Series – Kazdourra at Paupers Pub!
Our highly participative Young Artist Series continues throughout Thursday’s in May (26th). Free to attend in-person, or live-stream on the JazzInToronto Facebook page. This series proudly features music students from Humber College, University of Toronto and York University.
Thursday, May 26: Kazdoura (Ig: kazdouramusic) is a Toronto-based Arabic fusion band – 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.
Tik Tok singer Leen is a newcomer from Syria who’s 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 October 2021, Kazdoura released their debut single “Wain”, song of their Ep is set to be released, June 2022.
The 7pm concerts, are followed by the 8:15pm jam sessions – open to all young musicians. Also, in support of concert artists, a Pay-What-You-Can tip-jar will be available to the in person audience. We highly encourage you to conrtibute.
Since our series debut in February, our evenings have been an ABSO BLAST!!!
“This series checks several boxes for us – most importantly, it gives young musicians the spotlight and an opportunity to grow their audience.” (Ori Dagan, JazzInToronto Artistic Director)
Come hang, bring your instrument, and see what all the fuss if about!!!
