Jiyar Music | ژیار
Jiyar, also known as Shahram Etemadi, is a renowned pop classic singer hailing from Iran. With his unique stage name “ژیار” in Persian, he has captivated audiences worldwide. Born on May 14, 1976, his musical journey began at the age of 14 when he started learning the piano, fueled by his deep love for the instrument.
As his knowledge of classical music grew, Jiyar’s passion for the violin emerged. Under the guidance of his Armenian teacher, Zaven Yadigarian, he delved deeper into the art of violin playing. In 1999, Jiyar’s musical talents gained recognition when he composed his first piece for a theater production, leaving an indelible mark in the world of composition and dramatic music.
However, circumstances took an unexpected turn as Jiyar had to serve in the military, causing him to temporarily step away from his beloved music. During those challenging years in Iran, musicians faced dire situations, forcing Jiyar to pursue an alternative career path. He decided to study computer science, specifically focusing on software engineering, where he excelled and developed remarkable skills. Jiyar reflects, stating that “programming codes played the role of musical notes” during this phase of his life.
Following his migration to Europe, Jiyar made the decision to reignite his musical journey and return to his true passion. He sought vocal training from the esteemed tenor, Maestro Giancarlo Monslave, studying vocal techniques, voicing, and opera singing. With this newfound knowledge and inspiration, Jiyar released several singles, collaborating with talented singers from France and Germany.
Jiyar’s artistic vision transcends borders as he embraces global influences, showing a deep interest in the diverse music of various nations. With his exceptional talent and dedication to his craft, Jiyar continues to pursue his musical aspirations, leaving an enduring mark on the international music scene.
