Born in 1977 in Kirkuk, a main city of the Kurdish Iraq. Since early childhood he showed great talent and affection for music. At the age of fifteen Rizgar was offered his first guitar by his elder brother, and he was never separated from it ever since.
In 1998 after graduating and receiving his diploma in music from the College of Fine Arts in Baghdad University, he moved to Jordan looking for more exposure and experience. In this same year he began to teach music at the Modern American School, and played music in different nightspots. In 2000, he joined the Jordan National Music Conservatory and in 2001 the Jordan Academy of Music as a guitar instructor in both institutions.
Influenced by Andre Segovia, George Benson, and the King "Elvis Presley", Rizgar created his own style by mixing his Kurdish culture with American Jazz, Rock’n’roll and Latin notes.
At present Rizgar is settled in Amman- Jordan, active as a music teacher and performer.
