About Tonya

Bonjour مرحبا Welcome

Egyptian-Canadian singer songwriter Tonya Cattan's music is a blend of the Egyptian dialect & French language, a fusion of Franco-Arab texts with soulful melodies and contemporary Arabic sounds. Her music bridges the two cultures by bringing flavours of Middle-Eastern & Western Music through her original songs which can be heard on her upcoming EP.

Her debut single “Bashtalaak” is a product of her lifelong training in voice and exploration through multiple genres which led her to co-create with composer-songwriter Georges Nile a fusion they describe as "Jarabic". Following the release, her music created a buzz in the World Music scene in Canada & overseas. Major curiosity was ignited about the young independent singer-songwriter which followed by media attention with appearances on national television & radio interviews across Canada & Egypt.
