Rana Mansour is an Iranian-American singer songwriter who is a pioneer in the Persian contemporary music scene. Singing in at least 10 different languages, Rana's music helps bridge the gap between east and west. A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Rana has challenged the redundant and cliche arrangements often heard in Persian pop; she fuses elements of pop, jazz, rock, and other genres into her songs and artistic creations, elevating the standards of the Persian pop music scene. Rana Mansour is also the current leading Persian female singer who is a devout activist for the women’s rights movement in Iran where women are banned from singing in public or as the main performer.
Currently, Rana is residing in Los Angeles and actively recording and writing new material.
