Born on February 12, 1976, in Tehran, Iran and growing up in Sweden, Shahryar Rumi started playing the piano at the age of 11 and has become a Persian pop artist.

Shahryar’s love for the arts does not stop with music. His interest in architectural monuments resulted in him earning a degree in architectural design and business from a highly respected university in Miami, Florida — yet he never took his eyes off of his inner passion for music.

In 2002, while working in his professional field of architectural designs in Southern California, Shahryar signed a contract with Hassan Shamaizadeh, one of the most respected songwriters and producers of Persian pop music.


In 2004, Shahryar’s debut album, Aghaze Shirin (The Sweet Beginning) was released. Shahryar found his place in the Persian music industry shortly after this first album thanks to his classy music and silky-strong voice. He started working on his second album immediately.


In 2005, Shahryar released his second album by the name of Parseh with the collaboration of the best lyricists, songwriters, and arrangers.


In 2006, Shahryar released his third album by the name of Naji (Savior).


In 2008, Shahryar’s fourth album, Sarab (Mirage) was released.


In 2011, Shahryar’s fifth album Mojezeh (Miracle) was released. It is a breakthrough album in the Persian pop music industry since the 1979 Iranian revolution.


In 2013, Shahryar’s sixth album Dolate Eshgh (The State of Love) was released.


In 2018, Shahryar’s seventh album Faghat Nafas (Only Breath) was released. This work is based on the collection of Rumi’s poems from Ghazaliat Shams, which enhances the listener’s knowledge of the ideology of Rumi and the nation of love.


In the summer of 2019, Shahryar’s eighth album Zemzemehee Dar Bahar (A Whisper in the Spring) was released. This is the collection of Fereidoon Moshiri’s most famous love, patriotic and spiritual poems, such as The Alley, Ascension, and My Roots.


The Tale of Rumi concert series is written, directed and performed by Shahryar, featuring a 20 piece orchestra, where you will experience the immersion of Eastern spiritual philosophy merging with western fusion-style music. The Tale of Rumi concert series is inspired by the life of the great poet and philosopher Rumi. Shahryar’s modern and westernized style of music delivers Rumi’s message, which has touched the hearts of millions of people from all walks of life by spreading the message of love.
