"Born and raised in the “Music City,” Nashville, TN, the multi-dimensional, multi-talented, multi genre singer/songwriter, Ilyasin “Ya Za” Zarifa is a reflection of musical diversity.
When ask what her style of music is, one can simply say “well rounded”, in the sense that she can transfer any style of music she brings into popular music, drawing a spectrum of domestic and international listeners and fans. Ya Za is an easy going vocalist that pulls the listeners in with her clever lyrical concepts and a unique, sweet, yet demanding voice. Whether expressing through seduction or through pain, she has the ability to make the listener feel how the words connect to the emotions throughout …"
"Ya Za might be the most proactive, civic-minded musician in the whole damn city. Not only did she make the We Will Not Ignore: Songs in the Key of Humanity Haiti benefit album happen, but before the rain even stopped coming down on our fair city, she had already begun organizing a benefit for the victims of the Nashville flood. While the details are still being worked out, we're pretty confident that the end result will be just as powerful and invigorating as the music that she makes for herself."— Sean Maloney, Nashville Scene
Ya Za performs "Holding On To Letting Go" live (Bipolar In Stereo-Extended Cut <--iTunes) at The Last Drop Halloween party 2010
