Çiğdem Aslan

This world-famous Kurdish singer was born in Istanbul, now she lives in London and has been called the best contemporary rebetiko or "Greek blues" performer. "One of my favorite poets Edip Cansever wrote in one of his poems, ’Man resembles the place he lives in. Resembles its water, its soil. The fish swimming in its sea, The flower pushing up from its earth.’ – Music is just like that! It reflects the place it lives. The rebetiko songs offer a glimpse into the lives of the refugees, underground communities, lower layers of society and the society of musicians too.” (Çiğdem Aslan)
