Meet Kirbanu. Originally from Adelaide, South Australia, this singer/songwriter had no intention of venturing down a path of music or creative expression. After completing university degrees in zoology and environmental conservation, Kirbanu came to the end of her study and despite having the head of a scientist, found her heart simply wasn’t invested. Realising she was meant to be a musician, she picked up her guitar and started travelling. Several years and 33 countries later, today Kirbanu is based in Germany and concentrates on cultivating her unique musical identity. Acknowledging that money dictates a lot of the mainstream music industry, Kirbanu parades a refreshing opposite. Pushing honest music and authenticity, Kirbanu uses social media and conversation to build authentic connections, creating a loyal supporter base with the goal of building a sustainable, independent music career. Coming from the old Pahlavi language meaning “a lady of power, strength and fortune”, even Kirbanu’s name is a reflection of her passion-filled spirit. She is a Strong Woman.
