Kurdish is a language used in Kurdistan. Kurdistan is a stolen country, which mean is not on the map anymore. The colonizers of Kurdistan is destroying Kurdish culture and are ethnic cleansing Kurds today. You may have heard the Kurdish freedom fighters that won the war against ISIS alone, they are the bravest people alive, and they are the reason why Kurdish culture and language is still strong today. Have you ever wondered how Kurdish sounds like? In this article I will show you the modern and traditional songs from Kurdistan.

The first song is Warni Warni by Omar Souleyman. This is one of the best song with good Kurdish beat, and it also got the funniest music video. Souleyman is actually Syrian, but after learning Kurdish he fall in love with the language and Kurdish beat. This song is most used in parties and weddings.

The second song is Hey Lo by Diana Kalashova. Diana is a young Kurdish singer, and her song is about young Kurdish people holding each other and dancing to Kurdish songs. Diana's style is very modern with old traditional beat, and that makes it very intresting.

The last song is Zindan by Azad Bedran. ''Zindan'' means ''Jail'' and this is dedicated to all Kurdish people in Turkish jail and their only crime is being Kurdish. Kurds are the black people of Turkey, as we all know turks are from Mongolia, and half of Turkey is actually Kurdistan land that they stole. They are ethnic cleansing Kurds and destryong the culture. The president brainwashed his people by calling Kurds for terrorist (President Erdogan is known as good friend of ISIS), and today he want to ban social media in Turkey so he can ethnic cleanse Kurds whitout it being knoown.
