The first of the concert series “The sound of the past: Amida Concerts”, which was organised by Diyarbakır’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DTSO), has begun in Hasuni Caves, located at the foot of Albat Mountain, in the Silvan district of Diyarbakır (Amed).
MA musicians have also taken part in the concert, which was broadcast on DTSO’s social media accounts.
Klams (Kurdish folk songs) produced from the dengbej tradition were performed with santurs, violins and tambourines.
Other concerts of the series will take place in ten historical venues in Diyarbakır (Amed) and will also appear live on digital broadcast platforms. Following the first concert, there will be a piano concert in Zerzavan, a natural rhythm orchestra performance in Ergani, and a tembûr concert in Keçi Burcu.
DTSO’s Deputy Chairman Ercan Avşar said that Diyarbakır’s cultural values from the past to the present are not well known, and that this concert programme is aimed at increasing awareness and supporting cultural diversity.
Avşar also said that the Kurdish tradition of dengbej has brought the experiences of a hundred years to the present. Avşar invited all music lovers to watch the concerts on DTSO’s social media accounts
