The Sabir Sisters have been performing concerts and festivals, delighting audiences from coast to coast throughout North America for the past six years. They have released two albums and are currently preparing for their third release.
Their performances are brimming with boundless energy and a great sense of fun. Their music is a combination of Celtic Folk and Rock. Indeed, they could even be called the Celtic Corrs! Their diverse repertoire finds a niche in the hearts of audiences, transcending culture and age.
ShammaShamma, the eldest of the Sabir Sisters was the first and youngest female B.C. nominee ever to be invited to the Canadian Grand Masters Championships and placed in Canada’s top eleven in Ottawa. Shamma is widely acknowledged as one of Canada’s best fiddlers and has played on stage with the likes of Ashley McIsaac and Rita McNeil. She is also a songwriter and composer with writing credits for “Waltz for Eva”, “Holding OnÃ¢â‚¬Â and “In Loving Memory”.
Shamma resides in Regina, Saskatchewan where she teaches fiddle and violin.
Roxanna is actively involved in the Celtic music scene in B.C. In addition to singing, dancing and fiddling her way through North America and Europe with the band, she is the director of the Harmony Music School, and Irish fiddle school in Vancouver and Abbotsford. Her exceptional performance and professional experience in Cape Breton step and tap dancing, Celtic singing and Canadian fiddle history has made Roxanna one of CanadaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most sought after fiddle instructors.
Sarah studied violin through the Suzuki and Royal Conservatory methods and her experience with the Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra has provided her with the ability to play diverse styles. She also sings, plays piano and clarinet.
Laila, the youngest Sabir Sister is known not only for her fiddling but also for her high- stepping dance routines. She has danced with such renowned artists as Lunasa, April Verch and Celtic Thunder. She also wows audiences with her ability to dance and fiddle at the same time!
