About the Artists
Ghawi and Rae began working together in 2011 when Rae was just 9 years old. Rae’s first-ever live stage performance was at West Beach with Sami for FUSIONpresents Sunday Night Jam. Since then, the duo has performed together across the province for thousands of audiences, and have collaborated together on many original songs.
Sami Ghawi is the founder of FUSIONPresents and has hosted the Sunday Night Jam at West Beach in White Rock for 10 years. In 2018, FUSIONpresents and the Surrey Board of Trade signed a collaboration agreement to create the Surrey Music City Centre with the intention of building Surrey’s music economy and community.
Maya’s Rae’s music has acquired national attention on CBC Radio, Roundhouse Radio and social media outlets around the world. She is recognized as one of Canada’s Top 35 under 35 Artists, releasing her first studio album entitled “Sapphire Birds” in 2016 and very recently releasing her sophomore album, “Can You See Me?” to high media praise. Maya is confident and soulful and her authentic songs feel like a breath of fresh air.
