While growing up in her native land of Iran, Farnaz sang at every available opportunity but longed to find her authentic artist's voice.
Upon her move to Canada, she studied Operatic vocal training, Persian folk singing, then Flamenco cante and eventually Farnaz's love of music and performance art inspired her to create the collaborative project "Mashregh Ensemble" in 2012, which combine's Persian poetry with Flamenco music.
Her debut album "Bird Dance" was released on October 1st, 2016 with very positive enthusiasm and garnered her a Canadian Folk Music Awards, "Solo World music artist of the year". Her second album, live in concert was released in February 2019. She completed her first Canadian tour to great success in March of 2019. She is now working towards her third and fourth album, slated to be released on Novemer 2020 and May 2021.
Throughout her artistic and musical career Farnaz has been passionate about giving voice to the unique view point of Iranian female singers whose voices are denied in Iran, being forbidden to record or perform in public to mix audiences. Her songs always have a social message, be it delving into challenges of immigration, love in a new country or finding the artist path in uncharted waters. She remains deeply grateful to her second home, Canada for providing her the wings by which she flies as high as the sky is the limit and a voice by which to express herself fully.
