Farangis Nurulla-Khoja is a Tajik-Swedish-Canadian composer born in Dushanbe (Tajikistan) in the family of well-known Tajik composer, Ziyodullo Shahidi. She holds a Diploma of Fine Arts in Composition (University of Gothenburg, Sweden). Having also studied at the University of California in San Diego as well as at IRCAM, Farangis lives by the criteria of the international life and follows the aesthetic language of contemporary music.
As a musician, she works with the conviction that dance is the complement of music, and that language – particularly the language of poets – is above all a series of communicative sounds. For her, making music is a journey into the unknown, a search for sounds unheard and forms unseen. Farangis Nurulla-Khoja’s compositions have been performed in concerts and on International festivals of Contemporary music in Europe, USA and Asia. She has also received numerous awards.
