Singer and composer Aynur, a renowned folk artist and a cultural icon of the Kurdish people, received the award in the category Mediterranean Women in Action in recognition of her faithfulness to traditional Kurdish music and her perseverance in overcoming big challenges to follow her artistic path. These things make her an important example for other women artists seeking a creative voice in the Mediterranean music scene.

To hear Aynur’s voice is to hear the transformation of all the layers of human joy and suffering into one sound. It reaches so deep into our soul, tears into our hearts, and then we are for one moment, joined as one. It is unforgettable.
