Ziba Shirazi | writer, singer, songwriter, songwriter and storyteller
Ziba Shirazi is an Iranian‐American writer, singer, songwriter and storyteller who left Iran for the United States in 1985.
Ziba is the first Iranian female singer-songwriter, that not only wrote all her songs but also despite all the obstacles she single-handedly produced and promoted her seven albums since 1990.
As a writer and music artist, she is best known for her poignant songs and storytelling through poetry.
Ziba’s compositions blend together flavours of Persian melodies with world music and jazz.
In 2009, Ziba created Story & Song, a lyrical storytelling performance, set to live music with video projections featuring stories of Iranian immigrants and their struggles since the Islamic Revolution.
This project, which was also the subject of Ziba’s Master’s thesis in Performance and Communication at California State University in Los Angeles, has been performed across the US and Canada. Another one of Ziba’s lifetime dreams was achieved in spring of 2014, when she staged her first musical production, Spring Love, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Through her new ongoing projects, Story & Song featuring stories of Iranian immigrants, and Spring Love, a musical love story, Ziba continues to touch the audience’s heart There is a story behind every person. A story worth telling. We all have a life story that can inspire others to live a better life; don’t let it go unrecognized.
