Aryana Sayeed is an Afghan singer-songwriter. Born in 1985 in Kabul, Aryana Sayeed left her country when she was eight years old. Her family migrated to Switzerland via Pakistan and it was in choirs in her Swiss schools that Sayeed realized she wanted to make a career out of singing. In 2008, she released her first single “MashAllah”. After the release of her song “Afghan Pesarak”, though, was when Sayeed became a household name among Afghans. She was then asked to be a guest judge on The Voice of Afghanistan, a reality game show finding the best singer in the country. Sayeed also got her own show called Music Night, where she would perform and interview other artists. She has released over 18 singles in her career and holds concerts around the world. She sings mostly in Dari but is now working on her first Pashto song.
