ABOUT LAMIA YARED - https://www.lamiayared.com/
Born in Lebanon, Lamia Yared grew up in Montreal. During her travels to Greece, Turkey and Lebanon, she met renowned masters in Arab and Turkish classical music, and thus refined the art of Eastern chant and Oud playing. Lamia shares repertoires composed between the 15th and the 19th centuries during the Ottoman era: Arab classical music from Greater Syria and Egypt, as well as Turkish classical chants.
Lamia Yared works on the Canadian Scenes with several collaborations, as well as Ensemble Zaman, which she founded in 2013. She has performed at the French Institute in Turkey, at Montreal’s Maisons de la Culture, as well as Vancouver Island Festival, Caravan World Rhythms, Festival Accès Asie, Maison de la Syrie, Festival des Traditions du Monde de Sherbrooke and Festival du Monde Arabe. She has also participated for benefit concerts with diverse causes such as Amnesty International and Syrian Kids Foundation.
Lamia is releasing her first album in the Fall of 2019!
