ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Known for her tranquil compositions, Finland native Merya Qandah will tell you that she fell in love with music sometime before reaching the tender age of seven. This love affair began with the piano as she watched her Kindergarten teacher play. Shortly afterward, Qandah began taking piano lessons. It was at this time that she and her family relocated from Oulu, Finland, back to their hometown of Kuopio. Qandah then proceeded to study piano until the age of 19 under the tutorship of four different piano instructors. Within the final two years of her studies, she expanded her musical territory by receiving vocal training. Yet and still, for Merya Qandah, this was only the beginning of her musical journey into ministry.

Immediately following her studies, Qandah was accepted to study classical piano at Finland’s leading conservatory of music, Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. At the academy, she studied piano with two instructors and voice with two additional trainers. She also studied music theory, music history, and the list goes on. And although the academy had a high volume of students, this was a blessing. There was a culture of cohesiveness as they all worked together, which allowed Qandah to receive help from her peers while honing her craft as a vocalist and musician. With this being her experience, she eventually graduated from the Soloist Department in classical piano and voice.

Sometime after her time at the academy, Qandah resided in Switzerland. It was here that she served as the accompanist for vocal lessons at European Nazarene College. From there she moved to Jordan, Middle East, where she taught piano, voice and organ.

Since living in Jordan, Merya Qandah has lived in the United States, followed by the Island of Cyprus (in the Mediterranean Ocean), only to return to America four years later. She gave countless recitals, singing and playing classical piano music, all while continuing to serve as a piano instructor and vocal coach. To be more specific, Merya Qandah gave lessons in piano and voice privately while she also offered instruction at the Steckman Studio of Music in Oak Park, Illinois.

According to Merya Qandah, she came to know the Lord at age 22, which took her music in a life changing direction. Today, Qandah is married to Rev. Jamil Qandah, with whom she has three sons and one daughter. She has also completed an album as a means of spreading the Gospel through her talents. And although this album was composed in Finnish, it is something that will appeal to people of varying nationalities. As I listen to one of her songs, my personal opinion is that her music is reminiscent of the traditional hymn while possessing operatic undertones. Along with this, there is a peace or tranquility that is affirmed by the English translation of her lyrics.

If you can appreciate a good old fashioned hymn, classical music, or the opera, you will be able to appreciate Merya Qandah’s delivery no matter what language you speak. As she sings with irrefutable ease, the Holy Spirit speaks in a tongue we all understand. And that tongue is what we have all come to identify as pure, unadulterated music. I trust that as you have come to learn a great deal about Finland’s own Merya Qandah, you have all been blessed. And I can attest that you will continue to be blessed through her music.
