SEASON 2, EPISODE 7 & 8
Originally aired July 6 & 13, 2019
Ezra Kwizera’s music carries the spark of life along with the rich undertones of someone who has seen and survived hardship: war, poverty, and growing up as a Rwandan refugee in Uganda. Yet from seemingly insurmountable challenges Ezra has risen up to become one of the most notable artists and music producers in Africa and internationally.
In recent years, Ezra has travelled around the world and performed in front of thousands, in places such as Africa, UK and US. Now based in Vancouver BC, Canada and has brought with him his energetic yet soulful melodies, along with his signature unique mix of genres and cultures. Having a richly multi-ethnic performance style, Ezra fluidly sings and raps in English, Kinyarwanda, Luganda, Zulu and Swahili, while infusing flavors of Reggae, Soca, East African Bongo, and Pop. Hearing Ezra sing, you know that he is sharing with you his story, and making you want to dance to celebrate life at the same time.
