Zahira Dhalwani, from Ottawa, has just composed a Navroz Mubarak song (a song of Hope and New Beginnings) for all to listen to and share with family and friends. (Lyrics/music composition, vocals and recording by Zahira).
She has also released a Canadian Golden Jubilee CD called Shukriya whose tracks 1 (Shukriya) and 3 (Aavechhe Mawla Maara) were included in Mawlana Hazar Imam’s Golden Jubilee Visit to Ottawa Arrival video (available for viewing at TheIsmaili.org). The 7 tracks on Shukriya were also composed, sung and recorded by her. Shukriya is available at all Canadian Jamati Literature Counters.
Zahira has had the opportunity to perform on various Golden Jubilee shows:
- Umeed-e-Deedar in Toronto

Zahira is inspired by a number of musicians, however, A.R.Rahman tops her list.
