Rostam Mirlashari (Persian: رستم میرلاشاری; born 22 January 1961 in Zahedan, Iran) is a Balochi singer from Iran, based in Sweden. He makes songs in Balochi, Kurdish, Persian and other Iranian languages.


Mirlashari grew up in Sistan-Baluchistan a province of Iran and was inspired by his parents Shah Soltan Shiranzaei and Hossein Mirlashari who were both singers. Mirlashari studied civil engineering, worked in the building industry and was a director of a construction company in Minab. He is fluent in Persian, Swedish and English in addition to his native Balochi. According to Pakistan Idol, Mirlashari is known for being the prince of Balochi music.[1]


In 1991, the political situation and fear for his life in Sistan and Baluchestan Province convinced him to leave Iran and move to Sweden. In 1994, he established a band made up of a mix of musicians from Balochistan, Sweden, Africa and a few European countries. He called the band Golbang (Persian: گلبانگ; pronounced Golbāng). He is an active musician and considers himself to be a member of both the Swedish culture and the Balouch culture.[2] Mirlashari also studied at The Royal College of Music in Stockholm.[3]


He sang an old and famous balochi song Laila O Laila on Coke Studio Pakistan (Season 6) episode 4 aired on 21 December 2013. His performance received positive reviews from the public.[4][5]
