Shahla Sharif's Secondary Bio Rhythms

Shirzad Sharif is a Muslim (Iranian \ American) Prince Sultan Imperial and by birth descends from a long successive lineage of Persian Imperial Royalty (Pahlavi & Qajar Dynasties) dating back to descendants of Imam al-Hassan ibn Ali (a) from the Sacred Bloodline of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) from the Quraysh Tribe.

He was born to Iranian \ American parents and was raised in a highly privileged family closely related to the Shahanshah ("King of Kings") Aryamehr ("Light of the Aryans") of Iran, As such holds the Imperial title of Prince Imperial of Persia, Prince Imperial of the United States of America and Prince Imperial of All of Egypt (SA-RA) & Arabia (Amir).

His Official Title is: His Imperial Highness (والاحضرت همایونی سلطان میرزا شیرزاد خان شریف). He can also be considered an Imam-Zadeh (امام زاده).

He was fortunate enought to have been raised in an acclaimed musical family in Iran which has nurtured the likes of Legendary Tar ("Persian Lute") Grand Master Ostad Mirza Farhang Khan Sharif.

Shirzad Sharif's wife Sultan Khanum Jamileh Shahla Sharif also performs Middle Eastern Raqs Baladi Bellydance and goes by the stage name of Salome (Little Egypt), Sheyda, Fati Zangi, Jamileh, Sultan Khanum Jamileh (سلطان خانم جمیله), Sultan Khanum Jamileh means Beautiful Sultana Queen.

Shirzad has his own unique style which he learned from his grandmother and performs one of the oldest and most authentic styles of Persian drumming which was almost extinct & was strictly within the domain of the Imperial Court Musicians of Tarab & Bellydancers (Raqs Baladi) of Persia, Egypt & Beyond!

Shirzad was exposed to the intricacies of Persian classical music since early childhood and was fortunate to have studied humanities and the Tonbak drum under the supervision of Tonbak Grand Master Ostad Bahman Rajabi in Iran & Middle Eastern Percussion & the Egyptian Feminine Divine Concepts of Raqs Baladi Style Bellydance Tambourine & Doumbek with Grand Master Ostad Mary Ellen Donald in the United States of America.

Shirzad is very adept at playing the Egyptian Raqs Baladi style of Tambourine ("الرق").

As of late Shirzad only performs Middle Eastern Raqs Baladi Dance Music.

Raqs Baladi translates as "Do you know how to dance?" (Boys ask Girls). This song & dance form is considered Most Sacred and Sublime Song and Dance through-out history!
