Dr. Shahkar Bineshpajooh
Poet, Music Composer, University Lecturer and Singer.
Shahkar Bineshpajooh born in Tehran, Iran December 13, 1972.
Even before Shahkar’s birth, his parents had already decided to name him Shahkar, equating him with 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, drums, and percussion.
Shahkar’s family strongly opposed his interest in music, always scorning him for following his passion. As a result, he found sanctuary in studying Political Geography, Urban Planning, as well as Music Composition. He immersed himself into these academic fields while producing several music albums and poetry.
In 2002, he received his Doctorate degree in Urban Planning with high honors. He was officially announced by the Iranian Department of Education 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.
