After having finished Habibia high school 1989 in Kabul, he started studying medicine, but soon had to give up his studies because his family decided to leave Afghanistan, as the conditions there were growing increasingly insecure. 

Since 1990 he is living in Germany, together with his family. Eliass had to start anew, first completing a career as a businessman, and now studying economics at the University of Hamburg. But his true love has always been music, which he had learned and practiced first with his uncle, Fitrat Nashinas, and then with his mentors Sediq Qiam and Ustad Reza Ali Khan.

He created and registered his first song “Manzile wairan” in 1994, under his artist’s name Shahna, and has composed until now more music albums. After more than 13 years of absence, he returned to Kabul to help with the German humanitarian organization GTZ. During his stay, he organized two important performances for students in Kabul. He is the first artist ever invited by Ariana TV (ATN) to give two concerts in Kabul.
