Tahirih was born on 07 April 1980 in Tshwane. She was raised under the influences of the great “Divas” of the 80s, whose talents and souls inspired Tahirih to make music her life. Music and singing is such a natural element in Tahirih’s life, that her rich, mezzo voice has been described by one critic as “the most velvet listening experience in music”. At Max Stibbe Waldorf School, one of her high school teachers, Magne Skrede, encouraged her to develop her talent and invited her to Norway in 1997 as part of an international liaison tour between South Africa and Norway. She matriculated in November 1998 and in December 1998 was invited back to Norway to star in the opera “Amahl and the Night Visitors”. Tahirih completed her National Diploma in Musical Theatre (cum laude) in 2002 at the University of Tshwane, majoring in singing, acting and dancing. During 2002, she also featured in “Sleeping Beauty” at the Civic Centre and at the end of 2002 appeared as one of the main attractions at the FNB Awards at KFP (directed by Kevin Furthers) as well as one of the principal singers in the “Christmas Carols” show at Caesar’s Palace (directed by Michael Gladwin). She departed for Turkey in December 2002.
