When Ezra Kwizera takes to the stage at Blue Frog on June 9th, the magic of this internationally recognized artist will be shared throughout the world via Blue Frog’s new Live Streaming service. But nowhere will the effect of this concert be felt more than in his former home of Rwanda. Monies raised at Ezra’s performance will go towards the construction and running of the music school he is building in Rwanda.

Ezra was born in Uganda to Rwandan refugee parents, and now living in Vancouver. Ezra returned to Rwanda shortly after the 1994 genocide, during which many of his Tutsi relatives had been killed. Overcoming times of fear, trauma and struggle, Ezra’s history contrasts brightly with the leader he is today – a creative artist and a community role model who helps vulnerable children, youth and needy families develop the skills necessary to improve their lives.

Ezra’s music embodies the multicultural spirit of modern-day Canada, the style, a zesty yet soulful mix of Reggae, Soca, East African Bongo and Pop. With linguistic agility, Ezra fluidly sings in English, Kinyarwanda, Luganda, Zulu and Swahili.

An added incentive for seeing this amazing performance is the fact that it is also the CD release party of Ezra’s newest album “Humura”. Ezra’s performance promises to be uplifting and emotional with an eclectic group of African and Canadian musicians and dancers. It will be a performance to remember.

Part proceeds of this concert, as well as donations from the
Blue Frog Live Stream will go towards Ezra’s amazing work in Rwanda.
