Karwan Hawramy was born on December 13, 1981 in the city of Erbil, Kurdistan. In 1990, he and his family went to Canada to settle. At eight years old, he and his older brother, Karzan (then age ten), discovered an interest in music.
With Karwan being the vocalist in the family and Karzan as the musician, they set out to perform live music, initially for the pleasure of family and friends, but they quickly aroused interest among others. It wasn’t long before they developed a group of four consisting of a percussionist, drummer, keyboardist (Karzan) and vocalist, and performed at events and parties.
