Piris Eliyahu studied tar with Rami Azizov in Azerbaijan and composition with Alexander Bakshi in Russia and Sergiu Natra in Israel. He has composed choral, orchestral and other musical works. Most of the compositions he has written in Israel were commissioned and performed by ensembles, such as Musica Nova, Shesh Besh, the Israel Chamber Orchestra of Ramat-Gan, the Efroni Choir, the Hemiola Choir, etc. He also composed the music for Ehud Yaari TV documentary "The Khuzar Kingdom", for "The Last Village" documentary by Gil Lesnik and Soril Eliyahu, and for the play "Simple Prayers" by Aliza Elyon Israeli. For many years, Eliyahu researched the music of Eastern Jewry, with an emphasis on the Northern Caucasus.

This research continued following his immigration to Israel in the framework of the Centre for the Study of Jewish Music of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 1989 he won a research grant from the Memorial Fund for Jewish Culture (New York). His book "Music of the Mountain Jews" (with CD) was published in 1999 by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
