Shadi Toloui-Wallace

Bhai Kultar Singh

Australian singer and composer Shadi Toloui-Wallace aims to uplift hearts through her music and singing. Her compositions are often written to accompany words from the Sacred Scriptures of the Baha’i Faith, with the aim of taking the listener on a heart and soul journey towards a closer connection with God.

Born to parents of Australian and Iranian origin, Shadi’s love for music and devotion to her Faith blends these diverse origins to create music that is varied, soulful and unique. She recently released her first album, Leather Bound Book, a collection of Baha’i Sacred Writings set to contemporary melodies with a world music flair.

She says: “I am fortunate to have many influences and inspirations. Being able to perhaps touch someone’s heart in a song through the power of music is something I treasure. Music is truly food for the soul and, harmonised with meaningful words, can penetrate the heart of the hearer”. Shadi is undertaking a national tour with other artists both before and after the Parliament of the World's Religions.
