Heja Netirk had been trained and educated in traditional Kurdish music and conducted research into dengbej’s (traditional Kurdish singers). She learned to play the guitar whilst imprisoned for nine months in Turkey.
Netirk has an interest in feminism and her art and music is inspired by it. Her first album ‘Filthy Songs’ (‘Stranên Neşuştî’) was released in early 2020 and was well received. In her video interview with MedyaNews, Netirk explains that her album was inspired by her experiences after she was imprisoned. She talks about the lynch attempt on her life, her music and her views on the political situation.
