Sevara Nazarkhan (Uzbek: Sevara Nazarxon, Севара Назархон; Russian: Севара Назархан) is an Uzbek singer, songwriter, and musician. Her musical style incorporates Uzbek folk and contemporary music. Nazarkhan has achieved worldwide fame and has collaborated with high-profile international artists. In 2004, Nazarkhan received the BBC Radio 3 World Music Award in the category "Best Asian Artist".[1]


Nazarkhan was born into a family of musicians in 1976 in Asaka city, Uzbek SSR. Her father, Anvar Nazarxonov, is a former editor at the State Radio Committee. Her mother taught how to play Uzbek traditional musical instruments at a music school. Nazarkhan started her career in music as a doutar player in the Ensemble of the National TV and Radio Committee. Upon graduation from secondary school, she attended the Uzbek National Conservatory.

On September 22, 2006, Nazarkhan married Bahrom Pirimqulov. They have two children, Deniz and Iman Anvar.[citation needed]


Nazarkhan started her solo career in 2000. In 2003, she released her critically acclaimed album Yoʻl boʻlsin on the UK label Real World Records. The album was produced by French producer Hector Zazou. Following the release, she extensively toured Europe and Asia with her band. She also was the support act in Peter Gabriel's Growing Up Tour 2004. The same year, she received the BBC Radio 3 World Music Award in the category "Best Asian Artist".

In 2004, Sevara recorded Goʻzal dema – a collection of folk songs. It was a limited edition CD. In 2007, Real World Records releases her album Sen. Most of the music of that album was composed by Sevara. She brought two producers to work on this album – Bruno Ellingham and Victor Sologoub. In 2009, Sevara released a hit song titled "А Он Не Пришёл" in Russian, which became a major hit throughout the CIS countries.[2]

Sevara's latest album, Tortadur – a collection of Uzbek traditional/classical songs – was released in the US on 11 October 2011, on her own record label, Sevaramusic. Sevara invited "the old school" instrumentalists for the live recording sessions. This album is not electronically treated.
