Welcome to Queeristan! ZĀN is a desi-queer singer, songwriter & producer whose musical routes lay in an eclectic mix of South Asian cinema, 90s R&B and electro-pop. Travelling from Pakistan, Japan and migrating eventually to Perth, ZĀN’s sound evolved to encompass the falsetto of Prince; the cinema-scope of Hindi cinema (AR Rahman; Amit Trivedi); and sounds from the South Asian diaspora (MIA, Ben Khan). Both an ode and resistance to the Australian migrant parable, ZĀN’s artistry is a meditation on power, politics & freedom in the post-globalised world we live in.
