She left Iran when she was 1 year old, came to Sweden when she was 12 and went to school in Angered, Gothenburg.

She personally produced and wrote her 2005 self-titled debut album, in which she sang in three different languages: English, Swedish and Persian.

Not a fan of her music, too slow for me, but that is just my personal taste. She does have a great voice though and is definitely a very good singer.

But it's always nice to see a talented Persian artist break through (:

Thanks for all the vids, Xerxes :D
