Nurhak Kılagöz, an artist from the Mesopotamia Culture Centre (MKM), has released an instrumental song named “Dayika Taybet” to commemorate the death of Taybet İnan, who was murdered during curfews declared in the Silopi district of Şırnak (Şirnex) in 2015 and whose body was left on the street for seven days.
The song was released on digital media platforms on 18 December. The song attracted significant admiration, with particular attention given to its lack of lyrics. Kılagöz said words fail to express the tragedy of Taybet İnan’s murder.
The song Dayika Taybet is a mourning song, a silent scream, using wind instruments such as whistles, as well as a trumpet and a piano.
Kılagöz said that the song consisted of three parts and lasted three minutes. “The first part is about the clashes during curfews. The second part deals with the period when Mother Taybet’s dead body remained on the ground for seven days. That part I wrote in the form of mourning with long sounds. The third part is about the funeral process at the end of seven days”.
