Biography

Shahin Najafi was born in 1980 in Bandar-e Anzali the Gilan Province in Iran. He studied sociology in university, but failed to garner a degree after expressing a desire to learn sociology from within society rather than a classroom. Originally working as a poet in Iran, he was also trained in both classical and Flamenco style guitar. He also began working with several underground music groups in Iran. Under pressure from the Iranian government to remove the political messages from his music, he immigrated to Germany in 2005, and began performing with Tapesh 2012. The group was well received by the Persian community and media, in part due Najarif’s social and political lyrics. He left the group at the beginning of 2009.

Najafi’s songs are a mixture of protests against governments dominated by religion, poverty, sexism, censorship, and drug addiction. The song The Power Of Students In Iran focuses on harassment encountered by progressive students in Iran, while We Are Not Men is a response to the government’s attempts to suppress the burgeoning movement to secure equal rights for women.
