All her lyrics are about the life and suffering of Kurdish people and Kurdish women especially.
Aynur has played in renowned concert halls and festivals all around the world. In 2017 she received the prestigious Berklee Award. Her latest album “Hawniyaz” (2016) features the Azerbaijani jazz pianist Salman Gambarov and Kayhan Kalhor, a remarkable performer on the kamancheh.
