Shakila is #Flyah

 


Shakila is a Persian/American vocalist from Tehran. Her dream of being a singer started when she was a young girl. 
At the delicate age of nine years old, Shakila’s career began when she was invited to perform on a major television show. It is here that she caught the attention of numerous producers that wanted to transition her into a professional artist. While Shakila so eagerly wanted to become the star she was so destined to be, she made sure to focus on her education, and limited her performances to talent shows and school competitions.
Through hard work and determination, she completed her studies and ultimately succeeded in
becoming a professional performer in 1990. That year, she released her first Persian hit album.
In addition to her passion for music, Shakila also expresses her deep connection with poetry.
Using her lyrics, she paints a scene with her voice, which allows the listener to become a part of her journey. 
Alike many artists, Shakila shows her personality through her words and uses
poetry to create distinctive metaphors to empower her songs. She holds true to her devotion to
spirituality and the values of life that she so deeply holds on to. 
Music is not just a sound to Shakila, but an expedition through emotion. Her music allows the listener to connect with the
music on a level unmatched by most artists. 
In particular, she has always taken exceptional interest in Rumi’s poems, which has inspired her to sing many of his pieces in such a way that would make any listener feel empowered by pure emotion. With the combination of her angelic voice, and the meaningful words, it is obvious that Shakila obtains the true essence of love.
She was also the featured artist on the album ‘Operatica-Shine’, which includes two of her own outstanding performances. 
In 2012, Shakila broadened her horizons by extending her talents to the International market. She released multiple singles
such as, Fall Away, El Corazon (My Heart), Xmas and more. In addition to these singles, Shakila
plans on releasing a new World Music, English album in 2015. 
She also won the Persian International Artist Award, and she is also an official Grammy voting
member. 
So far she has released over twenty Persian albums, which have helped her gain millions of followers all around the globe.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
