Randa is a Canadian jazz singer who immersed herself in this genre at an early age.

Born in Lebanon, she is today the result of a real multicultural background. Before settling, twenty years ago in Montreal, she grew up between Beirut, Africa, France and the United Kingdom.

Her vocation for music has dwelled deep even though she studied French literature and corporate communications and worked as a journalist.
Since the late 90's Randa has enjoyed a remarkable rise to critical and popular success thanks to her smooth and velvety vocals. In her teens, she discovered jazz through some of its greatest singers like Nina Simone, Dinah Washington and Billie Holiday. She offers up a tasteful blend of modern jazz influenced by Brazilian, blues, French chanson and even oriental renditions that appeal to a broad range of audiences.

In 2002, she released Pillow Talk, a debut album that successfully showcased Randa's sensual, smoky voice. With I Belong in 2006, the vocalist's popularity soon spread from Montreal to NY where she started performing with influential jazz musicians. She lately worked with internationally renowned pianist Cyrus Chestnut with whom she recorded Moon Breeze in 2010. Randa is a seasoned performer, she sings in four languages that she possesses fluently (English, French, Arabic and Spanish).

She was listed in the World Who's Who in Jazz, Cabaret, Music and Entertainment 2007, 2009 and 2010 editions. She also appeared on the cover of Volume II of the World Who's Who. Received career recognition from the Culture Ministry in Quebec. She is constantly touring in many clubs and festivals around the globe.

Soon she will release her fourth album along with legendary musicians. Co-produced with John Lee and recorded at Jazz Legacy Productions, she is accompanied by Cyrus Chestnut on piano. The singer recognizes him as a soul mate and dear friend. The album will feature drummer Lewis Nash and bassist Dezron Douglas too. The line-up shall be completed by Freddie Hendrix (flugelhorn and trumpet) and Antonio Hart (sax).
