Esteemed Iranian poet and singer Shahkar Bineshpajooh, Ph.D., is scheduled for a 4-city tour through the US and Canada, with a stop in Vancouver. Immerse yourself in the grandeur of the 2-3 hour event at the Queen Elizabeth Theater. The venue provides spacious seats, excellent sightlines to its magnificent stage, and acoustics tuned to a pin-prick precision.

As a young boy, age 15, Shahkar was profoundly interested in the poetic and musical arts. He taught himself command over several instruments, including guitar, drums, and piano, skills he used to compose widely successful music albums during his undergraduate years.
In 2004, Shahkar was best known as Iran’s only rap artist, the Dapper Rapper. Fusing classical Persian poetry with rap beats and rhythm, he aimed to criticize the Iranian nouveau elite through conservative lyrics delivered in radical form.
Today, Shahkar holds sold-out concerts across the globe, collaborating with many acclaimed musicians such as Shardad Rohani and Andrea Bocelli, as well as prestigious orchestras, including the Armenian Philharmonic and Yerevan Opera Orchestras. These high-value productions feature cutting-edge stage design and lighting, often accompanied by dancers in traditional regalia.
