Kurdistan exists, the musicians of the group Nishtiman prove it. Driven by a mad glee, they celebrate unity in all its diversity, Kurdish Iraq, Iran and Turkey. Better than a speech. Nishtiman is a pioneer adventure! The artists gathered around music, language and culture of the Kurdish people, while the laws of politics, habits imposed by history have always separated the Kurds. We knew the music from the four corners that form the Kurdistan music of southeastern Turkey, northeastern Iraq, northwestern Iran and Syrian regions. By cons, music Kurdistan had never been celebrated as such. Beyond the symbol, it is the quality of the music that seduces.
This is an original project that goes far beyond the simple folk testimony, exploring the many facets of popular and festive music practiced in the Kurdish mountains, highlighted by the subtle poetry of Sufi melodies.
