The musicians present the diversity of Kurdish music from their home countries Iran, Armenia, Turkey, and Germany, combining Kurdish style with Western classical and jazz.


The Kurdish musician Yalda Abbasî (vocals, dotar) and the Trio Sêreng (Nure Dlovani violin, Beate Wolff cello, Laia Genç piano) combine the rich diversity of Kurdish music with elements from Western classical and jazz music, bridging different worlds.

The four musicians come together on stage with music from their homelands including Iran, Armenia, Turkey, and Germany, breathing new life into the music of Mesopotamia through their arrangements and original compositions. Their artistic work is always seen as a contribution to Kurdish culture and self-determination.

Abbasî sings and composes in both Kurdish and Persian. Her repertoire is based on a collection of nearly forgotten Kurdish folk music and melodies from her northeastern Iranian home of Khorassan. Since 2016, she has been living in Italy, which has allowed her to further expand her musical horizons and study classical baroque singing at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan.

The Trio Sêreng was founded in 2018 by the Kurdish violinist Nure Dlovani, the German jazz cellist Beate Wolff, and the German-Turkish pianist Laia Genc. "Sêreng" means "three colors" in Kurdish. Each of the three musicians contributes their own color as a cultural and musical experience and sound to the ensemble. The result of their collaboration is a special concert experience with a harmonious blend of Western and Middle Eastern sounds, combining classical chamber music and jazz, folklore, and improvisation.
