Her style is neither traditional nor pop, but a fusion of contemporary, Persian folk and American Jazz. Her compositions are a blend of quaint Persian melodies, world music and rich Persian poetry. Her soul radiates the best of ancient Persian culture. Ziba is not afraid to experiment, and strives to bring eastern and western music closer together. The progression of her work can be followed in the 6 albums she has produced to-date.
In her latest album "Fresh Breeze" Ziba combines jazzy improvisation with eastern melodies. Her poetry is refreshingly original, her message always bold yet mellow, loving but unforgiving. It is romantic, patriotic, anecdotal, autobiographic, sometimes tinged with irony, sometimes subtle humor. Working her magic, she captures the lover's heart and the listener ' s attention. Ziba Shirazi is dedicated to spreading her universal message of love and beauty, of unity and peace. Read more on Last.fm.
