Inspired By Passion
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” – Plato
Music has been a part of my life since childhood. I am thankful for all the opportunities and challanges that came with this calling.

Sergiu was born in 1981, in Chisinau, Moldova. He had completed his studies at Stefan Neaga music college as well as two years of studies at the Conservatory of Moldova before emigrating to Canada in 2002. Since a young age, he also simultaneously studied traditional folk and Roma (Gypsy) styles with his father, Ion Popa, himself a well-recognized accordionist in Moldova. Over many years of playing alongside his father at weddings, he became familiar with Jewish, Turkish, Russian, Serbian and Bulgarian styles as well. Despite his young age, he is quickly establishing a reputation as one of most brilliant accordionists in Canada today. He has founded the Sergiu Popa Ensemble, a group which was discovered by Musique Multi-Montréal, a reputable world music agency, in 2006.
