About Mariam:

Mariam was born in a beautiful city of Kabul Afghanistan and lived there until the age of 5. She then left her country with her family due to the internal war in the country and migrated to California, U.S., and still lives there today. Since a very young age, Mariam has loved music which led her to pursuing music classes and training in a variety of colleges and universities. She attended Ali Akbar Khan collage for eastern classical music lessons and western music lessons in California Universities.

Mariam enjoys sharing her passion with her own people of Afghanistan and singing to support and encourage Afghan women. Mariam was a new first brave female artist that had the courage to sing and perform for her people after years of war in Afghanistan. Her mission was to encourage talented female singers that are here today to come out and share their talent with the rest of us. She believes in showing them that they need not be afraid and to share their talent openly.

In 1998, Mariam decided to come up with a CD titled “Wafa”. She worked with Schubert Awakian as a music arranger and various American musicians including Atta Attash as a poet and arranger. The CD was recorded in Los Angeles California and became number one in charts and was a success and well received by her fans.

In 2000 she came up with the CD titled “Naaz” in collaboration with Waheed Gasimi, a poet, arranger, and musician. The CD was recorded in Toronto Canada and was a success well received by her fans.

During these years Mariam has traveled the world on concert tours for her fans. In 2004 she started working with Farhad Darya on a music project called “Noqli Maidan”. This collaboration will be released in the near future.

Due to personal reasons Mariam took few year off of the music industry but based on the love, support and persistence of her fans she returned back in 2011 and received enormous amount of love from her people in return.

Among multiple TV shows, concerts, and appearances, Mariam has appeared on Afghan Star as an honored guest on ToloTV, one of the most successful TV stations in Afghanistan. She performed live one of her original song (Aahoo Bara) the song had a big hit instantly and had millions of viewers.
