“Her silky soprano is flexible as well as powerful, and she has a magnetic personality to help set her music on fire.”
John Terauds, The Toronto Star
Born in Iran- living in Paris, Darya grew up in an artistic environment in Iran. Her mother is a singer and director of Marionette theater.
In 1999, She obtained her "Diplome d'Etude Musicale" (Gold Medal) in voice. She finished her musical education in National Conservatory of Toulouse/France in the year 2000 and obtained a first class as well as a Diploma of professional cycle in Baroque Style. Darya has also a Master Degree in Art at “Ecole des Beaux-Arts” of Toulouse/France.
Since 2001 she has resided in Paris, engaged in a successful career as a soprano, attracting listeners from around the world. Her concerts are heavily attended. One of her unforgettable performances was in Iran, when she appeared in the role of Tahmineh, from the tragedy of “Rostam & Sohrab - Shahnameh Ferdowsi”, with the Armenian Symphony Orchestra, composed and directed by Loris Tjeknavorian.
This was the first time that an Iranian woman was singing on the stage as a soloist after 24 years of Islamic revolution in Iran.
Darya creates her own music by combining traditional music of Iran and European classical singing. Her unique talent in arranging Iranian music with some Jazz and Blues elements, places her among top "World Music" Artists.
She sometimes combines different musical styles within one song, brings historical periods together and crosses languages and dialects. She follows her own instincts above all. In short, she has dared to create a new style of singing.
“Through art, I lift the boundaries.
Interpretation is not enough, and I only evolve when I create.”
