Kurdish musician Ganî Mîrzo will perform in concerts to be held in various cities in Spain to raise support for the children in North and East Syria, (also known as Rojava) and in the Iraqi Yazidi town of Sinjar.
Having been living in Spain for 28 years, Mirzo has been well known for his recreation of traditional Kurdish music enriched with flamenco melodies.
The Syrian musician announced that his concert will be broadcast online.
İbrahim Keivo, Neila Benbey, Juan Jose Barreda, Josean Martin and Fran Lasuen will be also taking to the stage for the concerts.
The income and donated instruments collected via these concerts will be delivered to the children in northeastern Syria and in Sinjar.
Mirzo has dedicated his life to helping children in his homeland Syria overcome the effects of war.
He opened a music education centre in Sinjar for those children who have been saved from ISIS.
His album, Domiz Camp, was inspired by the name of the refugee camp in Iraq. The revenue from the album went to Syrian children and refugee families.
Together with the international music organisation Musicians Without Borders, Mirzo previously delivered 250 donated musical instruments to children in North East Syria. This campaign’s story was told in “Harmony for After War”, created by Pablo Tosco and Migue Roth for Rudaw.
