Changes coming – and new Shahrizoda line-up!

Hi everyone, it’s been a long time between updates, and I apologise for that.

I have SO many things that I want to post on here and no, I haven’t given up on the site, I have had other priorities that have taken up a lot of my time.

Firstly, I am planning to do a layout/theme update on the site, so bare with me as I get that sorted out. I realise that the About Shahrizoda page is a bit of a mess and it needs updating, and I’ll do that as soon as I can. WordPress has some new features and it’ll take time to get my head around it.

Secondly, Shahrizoda have a new line-up which was announced around May 2021. I’ll share a picture for you below:

The newest line-up of Shahrizoda, Farangiz, Shohsanam and Guljahon.

Their names, from left to right: Farangiz, Shohsanam and Guljahon.

They appeared on Uzbek TV show Omon-Omon in December 2021 where they were interviewed. I don’t understand Uzbek and there are no English subtitles. If there is anyone out there who could figure out what they are saying, that would be wonderful! They sing two songs – one sounds like it’s performed live, and Guljahon plays the dutor which is great. Then they sing their version of “Dutor bilan men” (originally sung by Shahnoza S, Zebo and Risolat) at the end of the interview. This is a lip-synced performance as is usually the case with Uzbek TV/concerts.

Enjoy! I will hopefully have more updates for you all soon.

Wherever you are in the world, please stay safe and well!

Original member Shahnoza is married!

It’s been a LONG time between posts and I must apologise for that – I’m not even sure who, if anybody, is reading my website!

Shahnoza Shakirova, one of the original members of Shahrizoda, got married sometime in 2018. This definitely explains why she is no longer a member of the group. She posted a few of these photos to her Instagram and several were found via somebody else’s page. She looks beautiful! Tabriklaymiz!

Photoshoot – May 2017

Back in May (at least, that’s when they were posted!) the current line up of Gulnoza, Shahnoza Y and Risolat had a photoshoot coloured in oltin (gold).

This may have been connected with their performance at Aziz va Muqaddasan Ayol concert this year, where the girls sang and performed a Michael Jackson tribute. I will have a video of this soon.

I will be posting more photos that I have of the girls (different line-ups) so look out for them.

Shahrizoda make an appearance on ‘Kichkina tanaffus’

I have been a little behind on updating the site! But I thought I would post a couple of things. Shahrizoda appeared on an Uzbek TV show (not sure if it’s only on YouTube or shown on Uzbek TV?) called ‘Kichkina tanaffus’ (‘Small Recess’ – like a break at school). I believe the show involves guests answering questions like they are back in school: maths, history, geography etc. And then they are asked to put their hands into a box and feel what’s inside, and guess correctly before the time runs out! Very amusing viewing, especially when the girls are frightened of less sinister objects 😉

The current line-up of Shahrizoda (Gulnoza, Risolat and Shahnoza Y) appears alongside singer Gulasal Abdullayeva. Unfortunately I do not have English subtitles or a translation. If anybody wants to provide one, please be my guest.


Baby news: Aziza and Ulug’bek

Baby (chaqaloq) news! Back in 2014, Aziza gave birth to a baby girl, presumably her first with husband actor Ulug’bek Qodirov.

Aziza and Ulug'bek with their baby girl Iymona

Ulug‘bek Qodirov ma’murining ma’lum qilishicha, qizaloqqa Iymona, deb ism qo‘yishgan. Iymona 1-aprel — Xalqaro hazil kunida soat 18:20 da Toshkent tibbiyot akademiyasida dunyoga kelgan.

To paraphrase the above text into English, the couple named her Iymona, which means ‘faith’. She was born at the Tashkent Medical Academy on the 1st of April 2014 at approximately 6.20pm. This will mean that this year their little girl will be three years old! Time flies…

A very delayed congratulations, but – tabriklaymiz Aziza va Ulug’bek!

Ulug'bek and Aziza with Iymona a little older
