ZIAZAN

 

"TORNATE ALL'ANTICO E SARÀ UNA PROGRESSO" LET US TURN TO THE PAST — THAT WILL BE PROGRESS

~ Giuseppe Verdi

Ziazan has a very rare voice: soprano and contralto in one. Inspired by the range, ease and control of the singers of the so-called Golden Age of singing, she has spent many years practicing the teaching and singing methods of the past, adapted to her unusual instrument. She hopes to contribute to the understanding of this rare voice type; her introduction to the subject is currently in print. She is passionate about bringing the ancient singing technique up to date for modern music, and her approach, as well as her unique sound, has inspired and intrigued composers such as Anna Meredith, Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian, Richard Bullen and Barrington Pheloung.
Ziazan has made music all her life, and is a conservatoire-trained trumpeter as well as pianist, lutenist and harper.
