The CANJA project is designed to promote Arab music through concerts, courses and educational activities. It is also intended to bring migrants and refugees together, in a bid to spread Arab culture and encourage plurality and peace through music. In addition to the Syrian-born, Palestinian-descendant vocalist Oula Al-Saghir, the group features lute player Robert Keyloun of Syria, darbuka player Mohammad Al Jamal of Lebanon, pianist Nelson Lin of Brazil, and Diocleyr Baulé Jr. on flute, who’s also from Brazil.
Oula Al-Saghir was born in Homs, Syria. After having her home destroyed during the war, she moved to Brazil in 2015 with her husband and two sons. She dedicates herself to the arts, especially Arab music, with a repertoire straddling classic Arab songs and Palestinian resistance poetry.
