Hi, I am ZiZa. I am a singer, songwriter and producer based in Lucerne, Switzerland. My music draws inspiration from a diverse spectrum of styles and moods, including pop, jazz, electronic music, and Central Asian sounds.
Born and raised in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, I moved to Germany at the age of 21 to obtain my Master’s Degree in Computer Science. I got a keyboard when I was a student and started writing songs because I was far from home. It took me a long time to get the courage to perform in front of an audience. I started off performing at song slams and open mics. In 2019, I recorded my debut EP, “Between Two Continents,” and I toured both solo and with a band throughout Germany and Switzerland.
In 2020, when the world turned upside down, I set up my home studio and started learning how to produce music. I have been concentrating on songwriting ever since. I also played a few shows with a new set last year. It was fun.
In 2021, I met my husband, who was residing in Switzerland. After living between two countries for almost two years, I finally relocated to Lucerne this year. I like it here. Nature inspires me a lot. I am now working on my new EP.
I recently recorded and filmed the live versions of my songs ‘Ready To’ and ‘Don’t Let Me Go’ at Bodega Studio in Stuttgart, Germany. It’s online on my YouTube channel.
