Music is one of the strongest and most important transmitters of many experiences, thoughts and feelings spanning centuries for the Kurds. In this workshop, basic examples of various thematic and technical forms and systemic variations in Kurdish/Kirmancki music will be explained. The workshop will begin with key concepts and a brief background and continue with examples from some thematic forms such as migration, death, work, love, marriage and faith. At the end of the workshop, a song will be sung with all participants. Explore Kurdish music traditions with Ali Doğan Gönültaş!
