SHAHKAR BINESHPAJOOH and Symphony Orchestra
POET, MUSIC COMPOSER, UNIVERSITY LECTURER, AND SINGER.
Shahkar Bineshpajooh was born in Tehran, Iran. Even before Shahkar’s birth, his parents had already decided to name him Shahkar, equating him to a masterpiece. Shahkar remained the only child in the family. When he was fifteen, he found solace in writing poetry and, eventually, in music. Without having any formal instruction, Shahkar learned to play the guitar, piano, and drums.
Shahkar studied Political Geography, Urban Planning, and Music Composition. He immersed himself into these academic fields while producing several albums of music and books of poetry. In 2002, he received his Doctorate degree in Urban Planning with high honors. The Iranian Department of Education officially announced him to be the youngest student in the Doctorate program. All of his hard work has been in an effort to live up to the meaning of his name.
