Shirin was born in Tehran, Iran, and loved singing from her early stage of life, as young as six. She was invited to participate in childrens' programs on national Radio and Television, and sang at social events and celebrations in schools and public festivals. Shirin's early passion for singing led her to train as a soprano in Iran, and gave her the opportunity to perform in more professional environments. When a small window of freedom opened after the Revolution, her first performance was at the age of seventeen, when she sang the song "The Voice of the Revolution" at the Polytechnic University of Iran. In 1981, Shirin was arrested with thousands of young people as a political activist and spent five years of her youth in prison. Her passion for music and her memory of melodies of life strongly contributed to her ability to survive the intolerable conditions of life in prison. Her first melody was composed in her mind, based on the poem "C'est Une Femme" or "This is A Woman," inside the prison walls. In 1990, after escaping Iran and taking asylum in Canada, Shirin was introduced to Iranian traditional music, training in Avaz and Radif. She became an integral part of the "Khavaran" and "Saba" ensembles, and toured successfully throughout Canada.

Her performances have been enthusiastically received in many social, cultural and charity events. In 2001, Shirin was invited to participate in the National Film Board's documentary "The Tree That Remembers." She was interviewed and performed the song "Payeez Amad" (The Autumn Is Here). This song was her first experience with Iranian pop music. Following her humanitarian committments in 2003, Shirin accepted the invitation to be a guest soloist with the French orchestra, the "Mahapooran Ensemble". The group spoke out against the war in Afghanistan in numerous concerts, with a combination of Persian poetry, Khathakali dance and modern percussion. In 2005, as an Iranian singer amongst performers from all over the globe, Shirin was invited to contribute through her performance in a magnificent benefit concert called "Parlons Genocide" or "Talk about Genocide.'' In 2006, Shirin completed the production of her first CD: "The Height of a Rare Voice," expressing her appreciation for humanity, and her desire for peace and love throughout the world.
