Aynur

Highly praised for her excellent voice and her sensual singing, Aynur has become very popular in Europe among the Kurdish and Turkish community.

Her music is based on traditional Kurdish folk songs, many of them at least 300 years old. Gifted with a natural, beautiful voice and accompanied by great musicians, Aynur blends Kurdish with Western music, interpreting her traditional repertoire in a modern way.

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. This rather spiritual program she performs with her “Endless Duo” – Gambarov and Cemil Qecogi (Tenbur) instead of Kalhor, The more popular repertoire of her successful albums “Hevra” and “Rewend” is presented by a sextet.

„Whenever Aynur takes a melody, she makes it her own, transforming it into something beautiful, and every note, every microtone, every word reaches depth and unparalleled beauty. She is a reason to love live music for centuries"
