Short Bio

Siamak Shirazi is a vocalist specializing in contemporary Persian music with flamenco and American jazz influences. As an Iranian-born artist now based in the United States, Siamak’s work explores topics of social and emotional relevance to everyday people, both in his native country and abroad. After working as a professional musician in the 1980’s, Siamak took time to build an empire around his other passion, Wellness Based Medicine. In 2017, he began working on his comeback project, an album titled Tehran, in collaboration with acclaimed composer and guitarist Babak Amini. With poetic lyrics from an array of Persian songwriters, interpreted soulfully by Siamak, Tehran offers Western listeners an accessible way into the rich and varied tapestry of the music of Iran. Tehran is now available on Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, and all other major streaming platforms.

Past venues include Winningstad Theatre at Portland’5 Centers for the Arts and The Kirkland Performance Center.

“Siamak’s voice so deep and resonant, and Babak’s music so smooth, it penetrated all hearts [and] souls [who] attended. I did indeed feel transported to a mental, emotional, and peaceful place. I did not want it to end.”

--Kenneth Paltrow

“Babak Amini’s arrangements and amazing guitar, mixed with the vocals of Siamak Shirazi blend to provide an invigorating, yet relaxing sound, calling for each of us to be more understanding and appreciative of the challenges of the world today.”
