Born and raised in Iran and based in Perth, Tara Tiba is one of the few singers of her generation who have mastered the Persian classical canonic repertoire (Radif).

She performed for 50,000 people at the 2016 Perth Festival opening. For the 2018 Perth Festival event Siren Song, Tara’s singing was broadcast from an installation of 500 speakers on skyscrapers at dawn and dusk for 10 days across her adopted city. Tara's new album Omid (meaning Hope in Persian) received 5 Stars and won WAM Song of the Year. Tara Tiba has dedicated this album to all the people dealing with mental illness.
