Born to Iranian parents in London, I spent three years living in Iran before fleeing and returning to London. I found solace in music and initially trained on the piano before discovering my true talent as a singer. I pursued my passion for music by studying and gaining a BA Hons in Music and MA in Ethnomusicology. I returned to my Iranian roots by learning to play the tombak. My musical blend is the expression of a life torn between two cultures.
