What better way to achieve success than to share with others? Waleed Abdulhamid -instrumentalist, composer, vocalist, producer, film maker, and an active member of the Toronto music scene since his arrival in Canada in 1992 – has been able to give back to the community through his music.
Born in Sudan in 1968, Waleed began performing at the age of six, when he appeared on a weekly children’s television show and on radio in Sudan. Many percussionists across the country emulated Waleed’s unique percussion style, which introduced traditional rhythms into popular music. After leaving Sudan at age 18, Waleed performed, recorded and toured extensively across Europe.
