ROYA is a songstress blending pop, jazz and her middle eastern roots into a soulful expression of truth. Mixing the sounds of acoustic guitars, folk rhythms, and jazz infused melodies, Roya encaptures her audiences with direct but poetic encounters. Her voice, both sweet and sultry, pairs well with an acoustic guitar and the midnight sun.
Whether performing solo, as an acoustic duo, or with her six piece band, she brings a depth of musicality and energy to the stage. Roya was recently awarded the Edmonton Arts Council Cultural Diversity in the Arts grant to record her debut album Breath and Being, set to release on Bent River Records in 2022.
