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

Before that she had lived in Azerbaijan and Minsk, Belarus.

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
