Farzonai Khurshed (Фарзонаи Хушед) is a Tajik pop singer. She performs songs in Tajik and has performed in Tajikistan, Germany, and Russia.

Farzonai Khurshed was born on 11 July, 1989 in Kulob, Tajik SSR. She was born into a musical family. Her mother, Surayo Qosimova, and her sister, Shabnam Surayo, are both singers as well.

In 2008, she started performing. Because of the fame of her family and the beauty of her voice, she became an instant star. Her first hit was “Азизам” (“My Dear”). Preferring to release songs as singles, she has never released an album to date. She occasionally duets with her sister. She received bad publicity when a leaked video showed her performing at a club for drunk Tajik labor migrants. She defended her actions during the scandal, saying that she was performing for people who could not afford her regular concerts.

In 2010, her career was suddenly stopped because she helped her former fiancé escape from a Tajik courthouse. Though her famous family came to her defense, she was sentenced to two years in jail. She was released in 2011.

In 2014, she completed a pilgrimage to Mecca. She often sings about religious topics.

Later in 2014, she married Fariduni Khurshed and her comeback singles, “Ашқ” (“Love”) and “Лола” (“Tulip”) were also released.

2015 was a successful year for Farzonai. She won best Tajik performer at the Big Apple Music Awards, her daughter was born, and her hit “Очаҷон” (“Grandmother”) was released. A pregnancy and maternal health problems forced Farzonai to take a break in 2016. However, she is now back performing, running an active Instagram account, and releasing music.

 

Азизам (My Dear)

Гар барам набоши месӯзам, ҳей азизам,
ҳей азизам! Оҳ азизам…
Ошиқ шудан мушкил будааст, ҳей азизам,
ҳей азизам! Оҳ азизам…
Ин дил, ки тапиш дорад танҳо барои ту,
барои ту, барои ту!
Ҷои ту, ки дар дил будааст, ҳей азизам,
ҳей азизам! Оҳ азизам…

Дунё, ки аҷаб мегузарад аз сари мо
Аз ишқ намесӯзад тану пайкари мо
Ишқ ҳасту муҳаббат ҳасту дунё зебо
Аз оташи ишқиву хокистари мо [2x]

Гар барам набоши месӯзам, ҳей азизам,
ҳей азизам! Оҳ азизам…
Ошиқ шудан мушкил будааст, ҳей азизам,
ҳей азизам! Оҳ азизам…

Ҳей ошиқӣ меҳрубони ман дур марав
Аз пеши мани хаставу ранҷур марав
Аз пеши мани ошиқӣ чашми сиёҳат
Якборагӣ бевафову мағрур марав [2x]

Гар барам набоши месӯзам, ҳей азизам,
ҳей азизам! Оҳ азизам…
Ошиқ шудан мушкил будааст, ҳей азизам,
ҳей азизам! Оҳ азизам…
Ин дил, ки тапиш дорад танҳо барои ту,
барои ту, барои ту!
Ҷои ту, ки дар дил будааст, ҳей азизам,
ҳей азизам! Оҳ азизам…

 

Биё Биё

Рафтиву рафт дунёи дардам
Хунам ҷӯшад, дигар на сардам
Бар туву бар ҳарфи дурӯғат
Ҳей, девонавор аз нав механдам

Биё, биё, дил беқарорам
Биё, биё, дӯстат медорам
Биё, биё, девонаворам
Биё, биё, чун ту ҳазор аст
чун ту ҳазор рӯй бешумор аст
Магу дурӯғ, дӯстат медорам
Биё, биё, биё, биё, биё, биё

Ту чаро қалби ман шикасти
Бо суханой талху сахти
Ҳей, магар раҳме бар ман накарди
Рӯзе бар мӯям зор мегарди
