ZĀN - SALAFI SECRETS

ZĀN is a queer desi singer, songwriter & electronic producer whose musical routes are an eclectic mix of South Asian cinema, 90s R&B and electronica. Originally from Abbottabad, Pakistan – infamous for the capturing of Osama Bin Laden - ZĀN’s artistry comes from an intersectional socio-political identity; a queer muslim voice from the South Asian diaspora – or what ZĀN likes to term, Queeristan. Both an ode and resistance to the Australian migrant parable, ZĀN’s voice is desperately needed in the current music landscape and is a symbol of what it means to exist across social, cultural and political borders.
