Shirzad Sharif is a Mohammaden (Iranian \ American) Prince 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 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 was exposed to the intricacies of Persian classical music since early childhood and was fortunate to have studied the Tonbak drum under the supervision of Tonbak Grand Master Ostad Bahman Rajabi in Iran & Middle Eastern Percussion & Egyptian Raqs Sharqi Style Tambourine & Doumbek with Grand Master Ostad Mary Ellen Donald in the United States of America.

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

As of late Shirzad only performs Middle Eastern Raqs Sharqi Music.

Raqs Sharqi translates as "Eastern Dance". This song & dance form is considered Sacred Sublime Imperial Court Music, Dance & Art!





Shirzad Sharif's wife Shahla Sharif also performs Middle Eastern Raqs Sharqi Bellydance and goes by the name of Salome (سالومه), Sheyda (شیدا) & Jamileh (جمیله).





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 Qajar imperial court musicians of Persia.

He is largely responsible for restoring and preserving what is known as the Persian music & dance style rhythms. An extremely elaborate art form & body of rhythms, dances & techniques largely ignored over time which is considered a major contribution to art of Tonbak.

He also has proficiency in Persian Court Music, Persian & Egyptian Raqs Sharqi, Persian Dance Music, Persian Authentic Music, Persian Classical Music, Persian Folkloric Music, Persian Mystical Islamic Music, Persian Martial Arts and Battle Rhythms, and is the creator of an Islamic Imperial Epic & Mythical School of Persian Drumming, Dance & Art.
