Kazdoura, a Toronto-based music band, is a fusion that infuses traditional Arabic melodies with a modern twist. Their unique style harmoniously blends the rich musical traditions of the East with Western influences, incorporating elements of funk, pop, and soul. Since its inception in 2020, Kazdoura has rapidly gained popularity, through online exposure, collecting over 3 million views on TikTok and later through live performances in 2021.

The Syrian singer Leen Hamo, who made her way to Toronto six years ago, and multi-instrumentalist jazz musician Johnny Abou Chacra, Kazdoura was born out of a shared passion for Arabic music. Together, they embarked on a mission to reimagine and reinvent classic Arabic songs, breathing new life into these timeless compositions. In June 2022, Kazdoura released their debut original EP, titled "Wain," which garnered attention and support from "Habibi Funk" and secured a spot on their Spotify playlist.

In 2023, Kazdoura received two grants to facilitate the recording of their new album, slated for release in fall of 2024. This marks an exciting step in their musical journey, promising fresh and innovative tracks for their ever-growing fan base.
