Kurdish Music Sensation Aynur With Kinan Azmeh
Aynur is one of the most prominent musicians from Turkey and a proud representative for the Kurdish people. Her music is based on traditional Kurdish folk songs, many of them going back 300 years, which she blends with Western music in a modern and fresh way. Her lyrics often describe the life and sufferings of Kurdish people, in particular, women. Aynur has collaborated with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, Kayhan Kalhor, Javier Limón and Kinan Azmeh, and has appeared in the documentary film The Music of Strangers. Berklee College of Music awarded Aynur with the Master of Mediterranean Music in recognition of her contribution to the preservation of Kurdish folk oral traditions, interpreting the traditional repertoire and blending it with other modern western styles, opening a new path to this Mediterranean style. She'll be in concert at the John L. Tishman Auditorium in New York, along with special guest fellow Silk Road Ensemble member, clarinet virtuoso Kinan Azmeh. This performance is presented by World Music Institute in collaboration with the School of Jazz and Contemporary Music at The New School.
