Eldar Bahram oglu Mansurov (born 28 February 1952, Baku, Azerbaijan) is an Azerbaijani musician, composer and songwriter.

He is the son of musician Bahram Mansurov. His younger brother Elkhan Mansurov is also a musician.

Eldar Mansurov learned to play the piano in 1968-1972 under the supervision of Asaf Zeynally and in 1974-1979 he studied at the Uzeyir Hajibeyov Azerbaijan State Conservatory under the supervision of Jovdat Hajiyev.

He has taken part in many classical, as well as popular concerts and has written the soundtrack for a number of films and theatre productions as well as the songs "Bayatılar" and "Bahramnameh".

"Bayatılar", lyrics by Vahid Aziz and music by Eldar Mansurov was performed by Brilliant Dadashova and was released in Azerbaijan, Russia, Turkmenistan, Europe (including Turkey, Greece, Germany, Spain, France), the Arab World and Brazil. The song was used in versions and samples by Turkish DJ Hüseyn Karadayı and Cem Nadiran (in the album "Miracles") and Greek DJ Pantelis (in the album "I Have A Dream (Extended Mix"). "Bayatılar" is the basis of the refrain of the 2009 Euro-dance "Stereo Love" by Romanian musicians Edward Maya and Vika Jigulina. A copyright dispute over the song resulted in Maya acknowledging that the refrain in his song was actually taken from Mansurov's Bayatılar.[1]

Mansurov is married and has two children.
