About Ziba Shirazi

Ziba Shirazi was born in Tehran - which was, at that time, a mercurial, chaotic, but inspiring city. There she lived, attended school, and dreamed of one day becoming an artist, song writer, and singer.

When Ziba finally settled in Los Angeles, she started to realized her lifelong dream and began to build a career as a singer and songwriter. The warp and woof of her tumultuous past provided a rich tapestry and gave wings to her heartfelt and poignant songs. These songs were always about her passions, no matter what the politics nor the issues she felt she had to address. The key word here is ‘felt’. Because no matter what the subject, Ziba’s songs are never abstract nor intellectual. They come from her heart and are fired by her womanly passions.

"Obviously, I am a shameless romantic and shamelessly female, "Ziba says, "I felt that in our world, with its uncertainties and sorrows, there is no need for more cynicism to lead to more depression. What is needed is to identify and intensify the beauty which, if you care to look is also there. I guess I am the kind of person who cares to look. Sometimes the beauty that I see is full, abundant, and joyful. Other times it is a strange and sad beauty but, always, love, passion, sensuality, are my salvation."
