Best Artist Nominee

Zan (Glitterbeat Records)

Liraz By Shai Franco 1
Liraz Zan (3500)

The Iranian-Israeli vocalist sings with passion, urgency and a subversive sense of danger on her second album. Her melismatic voice, augmented by recordings made in secret by Iranian musicians in Tehran and then fused with sharp electro beats, pays tribute to the women of Iran, from child brides to freedom fighters (zan is Persian for ‘women’).
