Turkwaz is Sophia Grigoriadis, Jayne Brown, Maryem Tollar and Brenna MacCrimmon, four vocalists who individually have contributed widely to the Toronto world music scene and beyond. Their work together focuses on interpretations of songs primarily from Greek, Turkish, Arabic and Balkan traditions with forays into other genres when the inspiration moves them. With gentle accompaniment provided qanun, tambura, ukulele and various forms of hand percussion, the songs and the voices remain front and center. Their debut album “Nazar” was nominated for a 2017 Juno, two CFMAs and recently made the Top of the World list in Songlines magazine.
