Anatolia 2: Kurdish music 
with Gülseven Medar & Sakina Teyna

 

Our journey started on the 18th November 2021 with our first concert "Anatolian Ashik with Petra Nachtmanova" Below, you can check out the full concert of our first season for which we received your great feedback and close to one million views so far.

With your support, on the 24th October 2022 at the theater Odeon Vienna, we will focus on the music of the Anatolian Kurds. The high quality concert recording will be available for you on YouTube.  Our guest musicians for the “Anatolian Kurdish” concert are the Kurdish singers Gülseven Medar from Türkey and the Vienna-based Sakina Teyna. 

We are relying on this crowdfunding campaign to make this event happen:

 

The Kurds, today around 35 million people, are one of the oldest peoples in the Middle East. Their national affiliation is spread over several states, Turkey, Iraq, Syria and Iran and the Transcaucasian states. The majority of the Kurds, about 15 million people, live in Eastern Anatolia. The musical tradition of the Kurds is unique, diverse and fulfills more than among other ethnic groups, the role of knowledge transfer across generations.

Since the Kurdish part of Anatolia is a mountainous region, the music and culture of the Kurds was unexplored territory until the second half of the 20th century. Today, we still know little about the diversity that makes up Kurdish music. For this reason, we would like to devote more time to this topic.
