Happy Canada Day!
In honour of Canada Day, I want to honour this year’s Canadian Breakthrough Artist nominee Faouzia. She is an Arab-Canadian singer with outstanding talent.
Faouzia’s voice is soulful and eloquent. She has a remarkable vocal range and sings with great passion and grace. Faouzia’s musical styles are impressive – Pop, R&B and Synthetic Pop. Her music also includes Arabic-style sounds that complement her Arab heritage. She knows how to blend the two worlds nicely, creating a phenomenal mosaic of musical rhythms.
Her musical career started at 15 when she won three awards at the 2015 La Chicane Éléctrique: Song of the Year, the Audience Award, and the Grand Prix. Since then, she has performed with various artists and at multiple events, including a Canada Day 150 event in Winnipeg.
She released her first EP in 2020, entitled Stripped. It’s a record with beautiful compositions and songs rich in feeling.
Faouzia has evolved in her musical journey. I look forward to hearing more of her music.
