Born in Iran, Arash moved to Sweden at the tender age of ten, where he continues to reside and work as an Iranian-Swedish singer, dancer, entertainer and producer. Choosing to sing in his native language, Arash attributes this to his “deep attachment to Iran and Persian culture.”

Receiving many accolades and recognition from top global entities, Arash was recently named Sweden’s most successful debut artist in 2005 at the International Music Market in Cannes, France. His number one smash hit, ‘Boro Boro’ was featured in the Bollywood blockbuster ‘BluffMaster.’

Sports Illustrated tabbed his FIFA World Cup ballad ‘an ode to his native country’s national soccer team’ as one of the top three such songs of the year, a distinction shared by pop musician Ricky Martin a few years earlier. In 2006, he won two Grammys in Russia and was recognized as the top import artist in all of Russia.

In 2008, he released Donya “The Album” with the singles “Donya” a duet with Shaggy, “Pure Love” a duet with Helena and in 2009 he participated in Eurovision “The World’s Biggest Music Competition’ where he landed third place.
