“Aynur… makes [melody] her own… every note, every microtone, every word reaches depth and unparalleled beauty — Javier Limón
Aynur has become one of the most well known musicians from Turkey as a outspoken representative for the Kurdish people. A powerful singer, Aynur’s dynamic, mournful music breathes new life into centuries-old Kurdish folk songs that tell the stories of Kurdish women through hundreds of years of conflict and oppression. Aynur has collaborated with musicians across the world, including Yo-Yo Ma, who invited Aynur to participate in his Silk Road Project.
