Serhed Sahin, one of the young names of Kurdish music, told Serhat News about his musical adventure and works before his last song “Şirîna ber dilêmin” was released.

Young musician Serhed Sahin, born and raised in the Özalp district of Van, continues his musical adventure, which started at village in his childhood, with professional steps. Stating that the voice of Kurdish dengbêjs from the halls of their houses as well as village weddings is not missing, Sahin said, “Until the last years, I lived in the village. After my university years, I started to live my life in the city center. Since my childhood, there was an important bond between us and Kurdish music, I listened to it a lot. Our elders were telling us many stories about Kurdish music and giving us important information. My grandparents were mostly talking about Sakiro, Reso and Evdale Zeynikê. This was also the case during the prohibition years,” he says.

‘I have concerns about Kurdish music’

Stating that he is concerned about Kurdish music, Sahin states that although there are new musicians, Kurdish music revolves around a single circle. For this reason, Sahin says that in addition to voicing anonymous works or known works, persistence in production is important.
