Li Dinê – Newroz

Newroz as celebrated by Kurds

In Kurdish legend, the holiday celebrates the deliverance of the Kurds from a tyrant, and it is seen as another way of demonstrating support for the Kurdish cause. The festival currently has an important place in the terms of Kurdish identity for the majority of Kurds, mostly in Turkey and Syria.

Li Dine

The trio Li Dinê consists of three members (Gara Sazkar, Rewan Riko and Samuel B. Sindi). They mix eastern and western music traditions. Taking root in middle-eastern (Kurdish) folk music, they mix oriental rhythms with scales and melodies, musical compositions with hip hop lyrical flow and modern R’n'B productions with elements of house and rock. Li Dinê means “world, here we come”.
