Born in Cairo, Egypt, Raffi spent his childhood in Egypt after which he immigrated to Canada with his family. His father was a famous portrait photographer. As a child, he wanted to become a history teacher, however, his inclination towards music seemed strong from the beginning as he loved Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. After high school he started playing guitar and a few years after he was a drop out from college as he began working as a full time musician. Aiming towards building a career as folksinger, he started playing at various clubs and coffee houses in Toronto where he was appreciated and known but only amongst a few.
His journey towards a becoming a Children’s entertainer was a mere accident as he made his first appearance in front of children at a day-care centre run by his mother-in-law. He was asked to do more performances as people learnt about him and he felt the need of learning more about children so that he could entertain them in a better way. As a result he along with a friend extensively researched on child development and psychology until he finally released his first ever album Singable Songs for The Very Young, which became a big hit. In a very short span of time, he went from performing in front of small audiences to selling out live performances. He became a big name in North America and the media came running after him.

And his live shows and performances are like a cherry on the top as they have become the ultimate favourites for kids.
