Shahkar Bineshpajooh

Shahkar Bineshpajooh is an Iranian poet, songwriter and singer (born in Tehran, Iran in 1972). At fifteen, he began writing poetry and music, and taught himself to play the guitar, piano, drums, and percussion without instruction. His family opposed his interest in music, and he immersed himself in other academic fields while producing several albums and poetry.

In 1995 he founded the first Fusion Music Concert, and in 1998 the first and last Pop Music Festival – both were banned and he was subsequently banned for five years to perform in any concert in Iran. In 1997 he released “The Lady of Orient” album, and between 1999 and 2006 wrote, translated and published several books including Pablo Neruda’s “The Eternity of a Kiss.” During this time he also produced and recorded the albums “The Note (Eskenas),” “Your Majesty” and “Literature of another ilk.”

His latest album was recorded in Paris and performed with the Yerevan Opera Orchestra, Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra, Ukraine’s national Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra and Kiev’s Opera Orchestra. In 2013 he performed with the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra and now he comes to Canada for the first time to perform at Roy Thomson Hall.

Bryan Ferry

From his earliest recordings with Roxy Music at the beginning of the 1970s, Bryan Ferry has taken his place as one of the most iconic and innovative artists to emerge in popular music. In his work you hear a vocal and lyrical brilliance that merges the intensity of Lou Reed, the poise of Sinatra and the charisma of Serge Gainsbourg. But then there is something extra – a verve and performance so ultra-modern that it continually breaks new ground.
